Gmail (Google Workspace)
Cost: No charge.
See Getting Started below.
Google Workspace (formerly Google Apps for Education) email client is a Google-powered email service. The service offers unlimited storage for each account.
At the request of Clemson University Student Government, we have partnered with Google to bring Google Workspace for Education to students. Google Workspace was rolled out on September 17, 2007 which allowed students to use Google’s web-based email offering, Google Mail, with their Clemson.edu email address.
Google Workspace for Education accounts include:
- Google Talk
- Google Drive
- Google Sites*
- Google Calendar service
As part of the Google arrangement, Clemson employees may also take advantage of Google Workspace including Google Mail with their Clemson.edu email address. CCIT recommends and supports Outlook as the institution’s primary email service; but because no single email service is 100% reliable, you may want to add Google Mail as an alternate offsite email service.
Terms of Service
If you choose to use Google Workspace, and especially if you choose to use Google Workspace as your primary messaging and calendaring service, please keep the following in mind:
- Google Workspace is hosted and supported by Google. Very limited support is available through CCIT.
- All data will be stored by Google and CCIT will be unable to access and/or restore deleted data.
- Google Workspace will not be able to access Clemson resources such as meeting rooms. Calendaring for these resources is available only by using Exchange.
Go to http://g.clemson.edu to access your Google Workspace for Education email account. Your username will be your Clemson email@example.com. Detailed instructions can be found here.
