How to request a Google account with an employee email address?


The University of Idaho University Communications and Marketing (UCM) and Office of Information Technology (OIT) have worked with the Office of General Counsel to sign-up for an officially approved Google Workspace. While the service is not yet generally supported, if you have a need for applications in Google Workspace, contact your Technical Support Partner (TSP) so  your needs can be discussed and a solution identified.

Reminder: Approved file storage locations are documented here:  Google Docs cannot be used to store any University of Idaho data.



It is no longer possible to enroll an account with Google via email. You must work with your local IT support team for access to Google services.


Google Workspace Details

  • The University of Idaho Google Workspace has been configured with federation so employees, who have been granted access, will use their account and password to sign in.
  • Self-service creation of new Google accounts with an email address has been disabled. Creating a new Google account with any address must be done by OIT.
  • If you already have a Google account that ends in, you may be required to transfer it to the University of Idaho's Google Workspace. See How to transfer your Google account?
