Students, faculty, and staff will be able to distinguish the difference between core and public services offered through G-Suite. This article provides a general overview of both Google core and public services.  For more information on specific apps available through G-Suite, see the UConn Email website.


G-Suite is the collective name for the group of Google apps available to UConn.  This includes but is not limited to Gmail, Google Docs, Google Drive and Google Calendar.

G-Suite Core Services

Core services are apps covered under the University's Google enterprise agreement.  Core services include Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Drive, Google Hangout, Google Sites, and Google Groups.

G-Suite Public Services

Public services fall outside of the University's Google enterprise agreement and require users to agree directly with Google’s terms of use. Users must opt-in to gain access to public services. The public services content is a dynamic list as Google offers new products and expires old services.  Some examples of current public services are Google+, Picasa Web Albums, Google Analytics, Blogger, YouTube, Google News, and Google Places.
