VT Google Apps

Virginia Tech has paired with Google to offer VT Google Apps, a suite of email and collaboration services, through the Google Apps for Education program. The goals of this collaborative arrangement are to provide a powerful, Web-based environment that will support the university's community in teaching, learning, and discovery; to improve collaboration among faculty, students, staff, and colleagues around the world; and to reduce operational costs. Please note that the services offered are not the Google commercial versions; the VT Google Apps suite consists of separate enterprise services licensed from Google and protected by privacy policies negotiated by the commonwealth. To access VT Google Apps, log on to the VT Google Apps Portal.
