Services

Google Apps are provided by the University to students, faculty, and staff as an enterprise cloud-based suite of tools. Each audience has a specific set of tools based on their needs (refer to the comparison chart below). Users within those groups can also “opt-in” to Google’s public services made available by the University.

What Google services are available to me?Because of the nature of University IT policies, Google Apps has specific features enabled based on University affiliation. Faculty and Staff who opt-in to the Google Apps core services, will maintain their existing Microsoft Exchange account for their uconn.edu email address (Note: none of your Exchange data will be removed). Exchange will continue to be the platform for providing mail and contacts. The Google counterpart of these features will be visible in your Google Apps account, but you should use the Exchange version of these applications.

All Google Apps users (regardless of University affiliation) will have access to all available public services upon public services opt-in.
