Google G Suite@Cambridge

All University members now have automatic access to Google G Suite@Cambridge.

What is G Suite?

G Suite is Google's collaborative online work environment. You can access it from any computer with an internet connection and a web browser, on most operating systems. It includes:

  • Google Drive – an unlimited cloud-based filestore, with an individual file size limit of 5TB
  • Google Calendar – shared calendars
  • Google Docs, Sheets, Slides and Forms – office productivity apps
  • Google Keep – note-taking app
  • Google Hangouts – text, voice and video conversations (up to 25 people)
  • Google Meet – desktop and mobile videoconferencing for up to 30 participants

Note that our agreement with Google covers only these core G Suite apps and we cannot enable any other services (for example, Google Analytics).

You'll be able to share and collaborate on Google documents, sheets and slides with anyone with an @cam email address, while keeping them Raven protected. You’ll also have unlimited file storage on Google Drive, and can use it to securely share files with other Cambridge users or set up Team Drives with your colleagues.

All members of the University have automatic access to G Suite@Cambridge. Simply log in at www.google.com and access the apps from the menu in the top right of the page:

Delays in email delivery between PPSW and Exchange Online tenancies

Jan 22, 2020

Several institutions reported to us that messages to their Exchange Online tenancies were being blocked following routine maintenance to the central email switch (PPSW) on Monday 20 January. We believe we've discovered the cause and implemented a workaround that has cleared the backlog and will prevent this from happening again.
