Google Apps provides UC Irvine-branded Gmail, for example: firstname.lastname@example.org, and other Google services to the campus community. It is also is available to faculty and staff by request (see http://google.uci.edu).
We have an existing Gmail account. Are we required to use this new one?
No. You can continue to use an existing Gmail, use both accounts, or migrate Gmail to UCI-Gmail.
Is it possible to use both/multiple Gmail accounts?
How is UCI-Gmail different from standard Gmail?
Google Apps is provided and administered by OIT. While registered campus organizations are considered distinct entities from UCI, the use of University-owned electronic resources is governed by the UCI Computer and Network Use Policy (see the COWS Terms of Service). Some organizations may prefer to continue using off-campus accounts and resources. UCI Google Apps is based on Google's Apps for Education service. OIT chooses which features will be made available.
How do I change my Google Apps password?
You may change this in the UCI-Gmail Manage Account page. If you run into any issues you may also contact us or fill out a support request form.
