Google Apps for OSU
OSU Computer Helpdesk
Google Apps Learning Center
- Your Google Apps for OSU account is now activated.
- Always use the login portal to access Google Apps for OSU.
- Students are being encouraged to use the ONID email opt-in tool. Students that do opt in will not have a "gmail.com" address after they opt in. Instead, they will simply send and deliver their ONID email using Google Apps for OSU.
- Employees may also use the ONID email opt-in tool, but it is not required and you may use the other Google Apps for OSU without opting in. You should discuss with your department and your IT support team whether opting in is right for you.
- The core Google Apps — Drive, Mail, Calendar, Sites, and Groups — are covered under an agreement with Google as an OSU space, so you may use these apps to store University data and conduct University business.

Using Google Apps for OSU to Share & Collaborate
The OSU Directory has been incorporated into Google Apps for OSU, so you can easily share with others who have an @onid.oregonstate.edu email address.
You may also collaborate in your Google space with anyone else who has a Google account. This includes any Gmail user and any Google Apps for Education user (examples: faculty at Cornell, Stanford, and the University of Oregon).
Every file and document uploaded to Google Drive has a single "owner." When a person's ONID account is cancelled (for example, this typically happens 12 months after a person graduates), all files owned by that person are removed.
Each account is allotted 30 GB of space in Google Drive. This limit is for uploaded documents; you get unlimited space for files created in the Google format.
