New storage limits for Google Workspace for Education will take effect for all academic customers in March 2022. These limits are being imposed to manage costs while continuing to offer Google Workspace services to the university community.

EITS will continue to re-evaluate service offerings, and additional services may be rolled out in future phases based off campus needs and feedback.

After you leave UGA, you lose access to your MyID and UGAMail, which means you will lose access to your Google Workspace at UGA account and all documents stored within it. If you have documents or other files you wish to keep, we recommend you move them to a personal Google account before you leave the university.

You can find more information about your MyID account and connected services that are disabled after leaving UGA here.
