Google Meet

Google Meet is a video conferencing tool available to all UCD students and staff as part of your UCD account. You can access it through your Google Calendar, either by selecting the Meet icon from the 3 x 3 dots menu of Google Workspace applications at the top right of the screen or by adding a Google Meet video link to a calendar event.

Setting up a Google Meet call

To add a Google Meet video call link to a Google Calendar event such as a meeting, when creating or editing the event click on 'Add video conferencing' and select Google Meet (see screenshot below). All your invitees will see the Google Meet video call link in the event in their calendars.

Further support

Find out more about the basic and advanced tasks in Google Meet in the Google Workspace Learning Center (opens on Google Support website).

Data protection and security

The formal data protection agreement between UCD and Google means you need have no concerns about privacy or the security of your work or private notes. Some other 3rd party applications will not have gone through a formal security review so do not come with the same level of reassurance.
