All LSIT Email accounts are moving to Connect - UCSB’s email and calendaring service powered by Google’s G Suite for Education. G Suite for Education is a collection of cloud computing productivity and collaboration software from Google. It includes Google's popular web applications such as Google email, Calendar, Drive, Hangouts, Docs and Sheets. G Suite provides a complete package of communication and collaboration tools in the cloud that will allow you to get the information you need, whenever you need it, on any device.
Important dates for the Migration can be found on the Calendar and Waves page.
Why are we migrating?
This migration is taking place across campus. Eventually all Colleges and Departments will be using the same system for faculty and staff, including students with a departmental email address.
Benefits of Migration
- Unlimited storage (no more quotas!) for email
- Strong SPAM/virus/phishing protection
- Access to UCSB Core Google Apps
- Uniformity of tools across campus
- Ease of access on any device
