Access to Crimson Google Drive Will End May 2022

After the Spring 2022 semester, Google Drive will no longer be available to UA students and alumni with Crimson Google accounts.
Current UA students with a Crimson Google account (students enrolled before May 2021) should move all Google Drive content to Microsoft OneDrive. Alumni and former students should export content to a personal storage space.
Faculty and staff who share content with students using Google Drive should also transition to use OneDrive.
This project is a function of OIT’s initiative to consolidate redundant email and cloud storage environments at UA. One major step in this project was completed by migrating Crimson email accounts from Google to Microsoft O365. Coincidentally, Google will be limiting available storage space for Google for Education customers in 2022, further accelerating the need to move away from the Google platform.
See more information, and step-by-step guides for moving content, on the OIT website.
