Google Workspace Transition

In February 2021, Google announced G Suite for Education would be renamed to Google Workspace for Education. The most significant impact of these changes are:

  • Unlimited storage will no longer be available in Google Workspace.
  • Between now and June 2024, UC San Diego will migrate to a managed storage model in which faculty, researchers, students, and staff will have limits on the space available across their Google Workspace services.

The migration to a managed storage model will have minimal effect on the vast majority of UC San Diego faculty, students, and staff.

Our objective is to provide a well-informed and supported campus community during this transition, which is set for completion in the latter half of 2024. ITS is dedicated to ensuring seamless and efficient utilization of Google Workspace now and moving forward, across a diverse range of collaboration and communication situations. 

Campus Response

Because of the extensive use of Google Workspace, UC San Diego signed a favorable, seven-year, UC negotiated agreement for the top-tier Google Workspace for Education Plus edition. This will include many new and enhanced features, and ensure the continued availability of Google's collaboration and communication tools as a campus-wide enterprise service.
