UCD transition to Google EU Data Centres

Mon, 7 December 20

This November, UCD entered into an agreement with Google to house UCD staff and student G-Suite (now called Google Workspace) data in Google's EU Data Centres. The transition of our service to the EU was informed by enhanced data privacy rules and in particular by the ruling of the Court of Justice of the EU in July, which raised the bar in relation to the requirement to keep data within the EU.

The transition of staff accounts is now complete and student accounts will follow. As a result, Google Workspace data for UCD Staff and Students including Mail, Drive, Calendar, Forms and Currents will be stored in the EU.
