Why BC Gmail?

Using your BC Gmail account as your primary account to communicate and collaborate at BC has many advantages, including:

  • No ads! BC Google Apps is ad-free.
  • Access to the BC Directory. Need to look up an email address? You no longer have to go through the Portal. Simply type someone's name, and it will display (or you'll be able to choose it from a list). All BC students, faculty, and staff are included in the BC Gmail directory.
  • Plenty of storage space. BC students have 30 GB of storage space (allowing email attachments of up to 25 MB) across Gmail, Google Drive, and Google + photos for your messages and files.
  • Easy collaboration. You can create your own groups, assign permissions, and share messages and files with any student at BC.
