Google Workspace for Education is VCU’s email and collaboration platform available to faculty, staff and students. Accounts are created using your VCU eID and email addresses are eID@vcu.edu.
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.
VCU students use Google Workspace for Education for collaboration. Student email addresses are in the format: eID@vcu.edu. If you are a student and an employee (except School of Medicine employees), you will use one account. School of Medicine employees who also are VCU students will use two accounts. Student email addressed to eID@vcu.edu will arrive in the student Google Workspace for Education account. Email addressed to the @vcuhealth.org address will arrive in the employee account.
In mid-May, 2021, student accounts moved to the faculty/staff vcu.edu domain and students have email addresses in the format: eID@vcu.edu. Further information related to this change was communicated directly to students and updates are available at https://collaborate.vcu.edu/domain-merge/.
VCU faculty and staff use Google Workspace for Education. 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.
VCU affiliates (except School of Medicine) use Google Workspace for Education for collaboration. Affiliate email addresses are in the format eID@vcu.edu. Affiliate Google Workspace for Education accounts are enabled by request of the affiliate's department. Affiliate Google Workspace accounts are not automatically provided. Once enabled, these accounts follow the same guidelines as faculty & staff accounts.
