Google Workspace for Education is VCU’s email and collaboration platform available to faculty, staff and students. Currently, VCU has separate domains for faculty/staff and students. These domains will be merged in mid-May, 2021. Expect new announcements related to this change. Accounts are created automatically based on your role(s). If you have more than one role at VCU, this page will help you learn how your account(s) will work.
To get started, you’ll need your eID. If you haven’t claimed your eID, start by going to myeid.vcu.edu, then come back and learn more about your new Google Workspace account.
Currently, the student implementation of Google Workspace for Education is myVCUmail. Student email addresses are in the format: eID@mymail.vcu.edu. If your only role at VCU is student, email sent eID@vcu.edu will arrive in your student account. We recommend that you use your @mymail.vcu.edu address as this will help with login from Google, Google Drive sharing, mobile access setup, etc.
In mid-May, 2021, student accounts will move to the faculty/staff domain and students will have email addresses in the format: eID@vcu.edu. Further information related to this change will be communicated directly to students who will be affected and updates will be available at https://collaborate.vcu.edu/domain-merge/.
The faculty & staff implementation of Google Workspace for Education is appsforVCU. Faculty & Staff email addresses are in the format eID@vcu.edu.
Google Drive is the only VCU Google Workspace service provided to SOM employees. There are certain restrictions placed on the Google Drive only account. See the SOM Technology Service wiki for guidelines for Google Drive. School of Medicine faculty & staff use VCU Health email accounts. More information on obtaining a VCU Health email can be found on the SOM Technology Services wiki.
The faculty & staff implementation of Google Workspace for Education is appsforVCU. Faculty & Staff email addresses are in the format eID@vcu.edu. If you have more than one role at VCU, check out our guide to help you learn how your account will work.
Beginning March 10, 2021, we will begin merging two Google domains. Accepted students for Fall 2021 will access their Google Workspace for Education accounts the same as faculty & staff. Accepted students for Fall 2021 email addresses are in the format eID@vcu.edu. Students accepted before March 10 for Fall 2021 were accessing their accounts in the mymail domain. A new account will be available beginning March 10 and any emails needed should be forwarded. Login to your account will then be as outlined in this document under Accepted Students Fall 2021.
