Google Calendar

Google Calendar enables you to create shareable calendars designed for teams, to manage your own events or to invite others. Google Calendar events may also have a Google Meet video call associated with them.

Accessing your Google Calendar on your own device

If you want to synchronise your G Suite@Cambridge Google Calendar with a calendar on your own computer (for example Apple's Calendar) or mobile device, you should find that most modern calendar apps will support syncing with Google natively. All you will need to do is sign in using your CRSid@cam.ac.uk email address and Raven password.

You can find instructions for Android, iOS and macOS on Google's Calendar Support site.


 

In rare cases where a calendaring app doesn't support this approach, you could use Google's App Password feature to provide a special password that is used only for your calendaring device.

First, ensure that 2-Step Verification is turned on for your account:

  1. Log in to 'My account' using your CRSid@cam.ac.uk and UIS Password, and select the 'Security' tab: https://myaccount.google.com/security


    The security tab in the Google 'My Account' page


  2. Ensure that '2-Step Verification' is 'On'. If it isn't, toggle the 'Off' setting and follow the on-screen instructions to enable it. You'll need to provide a mobile phone number and, when prompted, enter a code texted to you by Google.

You can now follow the instructions on Google's Calendar Help site:

 How to see Google Calendar events on Apple Calendar (macOS or iOS)

You will need your G Suite@Cambridge App Password. Further details are available on Google's Help site:

Other help

The best source of help on using Calendar itself is Google's own Google Calendar Help site. Google also has a G Suite Learning Center with a section on Google Calendar, which can introduce you to the software and guide you through performing specific tasks.
