March 15, 2021

To: All active account holders of Ryerson Google Workspace for Education

Google has announced that G Suite for Education is now known as Google Workspace for Education. Along with the updated name, Google’s new account storage policy will end the current availability of unlimited storage for educational institutions in July 2022.

In order to prepare, please review your current storage usage (external link)  and delete any unnecessary files in Drive and Gmail.

Four ways to reduce your data usage

Please complete the following steps to reduce your data usage:

Retention schedule

When making decisions around what to delete, we recommend reviewing the Records Retention Schedule (RRS) to confirm the minimum retention period for different record types.

Storage limits to be introduced in early 2022

These steps will be voluntary through 2021 and more information, including your specific storage limit, will be shared later this year. Beginning in early 2022, we will implement individual storage limits for all users at Ryerson. Please complete the steps above as soon as possible.
