Google Workspace: the new name for GSuite

Wed, 18 November 20


GSuite, the package of Google applications provided by UCD IT Services to students and staff, has now been renamed as Google Workspace. The relaunched service enables users to log in with their UCD Connect details to communicate and collaborate through an integrated range of apps, accessible across multiple devices.

As well as accessing your UCD email (through Gmail), calendar and Google Drive as normal, you can also take advantage of other new and improved Google Workspace apps, including:

  • Google Chat, previously known as Hangouts, for collaborating with teams and colleagues
  • Google Currents, for creating active communities, either open or private, to discuss topics and share ideas
  • Google Keep, for making notes by text, image or voice that can then be used in other Google applications
