Google Drive

Ringling College is dedicated to providing robust digital resources to our community. Our main cloud storage provider called Google Drive provides a secure, accessible, and reliable storage location for College Data. Files can be shared easily from within Google Drive and revision history provides a way to download an earlier state of the file even if it was overwritten. Please note, you must be logged in to your Ringling Gmail account to access Google Drive. You can access this storage space through the portal by selecting the 'Drive' icon below Gmail. You can also access it from or through the apps menu when in Gmail: 

Google Drive is even better when you utilize Google Drive For Desktop to automatically backup the folders you designate. Below is a video tutorial which explains in more detail.

For detailed guidelines on managing your storage and to understand the importance of balancing resources with storage costs, please refer to our Google Drive Storage Quotas document.
