Changes to Cornell Google storage

Cornell will no longer be able to offer unlimited Gmail storage to alumni. This is a result of recent changes to Google’s pricing structure: Google no longer offers free unlimited storage to universities.

But don’t worry! You can keep your current Gmail account, and there are steps you can take now to prepare for this change and not lose any of your important data.

Here are the basics:

What we’re asking you to do before July 31, 2023

Check how much Google storage you’re using now. Go to the Drive Storage section of your Cornell Google account to see your current storage amount. (You’ll need to sign in with your Cornell NetID and password.)

Cornell Microsoft Office 365 email accounts

Following these changes, Microsoft Office 365 will become the preferred email service for Cornell alumni. These accounts will offer 50GB of storage, and you can request an account as soon as they become available (planned in September 2022).
