Oregon State University

Can departments or organizations have shared Google Account?

Unfortunately, no.  There is no way to create generic or shared Google Accounts for departments, groups, or any other organizations.  Google only provides Drive, Calendar, and Mail space for personal ONID accounts currently; therefore, only people affiliated with the University can have Google space.


If you would like to share a document with a group, instructions on how to do so can be found here.


If you would like to transfer the ownership of a document, as you would need to do in the case of leaving OSU, information on how to do that can be found here.
