Google Team Drives

Information and resources about Google Team Drives


Anyone with a valid NetID has access to the university's Google G Suite subscription. One of the features of the G Suite is access to Google's Team Drives. Team Drives allow for easy cloud file storage and collaboration, as you can specify users who can access all files in a given drive. You can also give access to Google users outside of the university.

3. To add members to your drive, click + Add members

4. You can search for other UW members by name or email, or enter the email address of members outside of the university.
