Google Workspace Changes

Google recently changed its policies and no longer offers complimentary unlimited storage for Google Workspace, which includes R’Mail, Drive, Calendar, and Photos. This change impacts all Google users, including all institutions of higher education.

To comply with this policy change, UC Riverside must begin implementing storage quotas for Google Workspace by June 1, 2024.

How can I prepare for this change?

Most members of our campus community will not be affected by this change. However, you are encouraged to check your current Google storage usage to ensure your storage usage is within the new quota. You can view the storage use of each file stored in your Google Drive to identify large files that are taking up considerable space to determine which files you may want to store elsewhere (for example, on an external hard drive or alternate cloud storage solution).

Please note that this policy change does not impact other Google services or your account access. To learn more, read this Knowledge Base article.
