York University undergraduate students are reminded that the University is moving its @yorku.ca undergraduate e-mail accounts to a York U service powered by Google’s web-based suite of services and collaboration tools known as Google Apps. The new Google Apps at York includes:

  • e-mail
  • calendaring
  • file storage and sharing
  • Google docs and more.
York University undergraduates can sign up for their Google Apps account at any time prior to April 1 April 17. When they do, their Google Apps at York account will be created immediately and the e-mail content from the existing @yorku.ca account will be moved automatically on April 28 May 4.
An important note to students: If you do not sign up prior to April 1, your Google Apps at York will be created on April 28 May 4, but the e-mail content in your existing @yorku.ca account will not be moved automatically. After your account has been created, instructions will be available for you to manually move your e-mail content.

For more information about Google Apps at York, see the Dec. 1, 2014 YFile story. To learn more about how to sign up, visit the Google Apps at York website.
