Google Apps

Google Apps for EducationGoogle Apps is a suite of online cloud-based services which includes email, documents, spreadsheets, presentations, messaging, chats, file storage and many other applications. It is the same system URI students and alumni began using in 2010 and has proven to be a successful and important educational tool in our global, online collaborative environment. Responding to the needs of its academic community, the University  has moved email services, exclusively, to Google Apps for Education.
