Apps Available to Brown Google Accounts

Brown uses GSuite for its collaboration and productivity tools. All members of the Brown community, except some affiliates and summer students, receive a Google account which they can use to access the following apps.

While you can use the links below to access your apps, they are also available from a menu you'll see after you have logged in to your mail. For instructions, see the article Access Apps in Google.

Core Apps

Brown's core suite of Google Apps are covered by a policy agreement that provides higher levels of security, privacy, and prohibits advertisements. We are able to put in support tickets with Google if you have issues with these apps. 

  • Assignments
  • Calendar
  • Classroom
  • Cloud Search
  • Drive and Docs
  • Gmail
  • Google Chat
  • Google Chrome Sync
  • Google Meet
  • Jamboard 
  • Keep
  • Sites
  • Tasks

Consumer Apps

"Consumer Apps" are apps that you can use with your email address, but that do not fall under Brown's contract with Google. In some cases, these consumer apps may display ads, products may change without notice, and uptime is not guaranteed. CIS may not have the expertise to support these and we cannot put in tickets with Google if you have issues. Remember that the access and use of these consumer apps still falls under the Brown Acceptable Use Policy.
