Google Apps Benefits


Unlimited Storage

Google Apps users now have unlimited storage of documents, photos, email and files through Google Drive.


Accessible: Anytime, Anywhere

Access your content on Google Drive from anywhere with an internet connection: computers and mobile devices


Offline Access

Enable Offline Access in Chrome or on your device and you can access your content even if you're offline in Gmail, Calendar and Google Drive.


SBU Branded E-mail

Email addresses follow this format: firstname.lastname@stonybrook.edu (common names will have some variation to this).


No More Updates

As a web service, Google Apps is automatically updated by Google. You will not have to worry about installing updates yourself.

Group Management Tools

Create your own groups to simplify communication and collaboration. Request a Google Group, and then you can add and remove members and manage group settings. 


Chat Your Way

Use text, voice and video chat with Google Hangouts. Need to share what you're seeing on your screen? Google Hangouts does that, too!

Who Gets An Account?

Accounts are automatically created for all eligible students, faculty, and staff. Special domains exist for retirees and alumni.

Former SB mail systems (Lotus Notes, MS, and MySBmail) are slowly being phased out and will eventually be decommissioned.
