Changes to Unlimited Storage
In February 2021, Google announced that they are ending unlimited storage for Google Workspace for Education users, the system that CalArts utilizes across our community, in July 2022. Unfortunately, this is part of an ongoing trend toward eliminating free storage across the industry.
For our alumnx who use a firstname.lastname@example.org email, the email account will not be going away. You will be able to retain and continue to use the email after July 2022. However, Google’s limits on storage means that we have to prioritize the storage needs of our current students. As a result, the storage associated with your account will likely be eliminated.
The Alumnx and Family Engagement team stands ready to assist you, should you need any help mitigating this issue prior to the limit on storage being put into place next summer. If you have any questions or concerns, please email email@example.com.
