Get Connected! Computing and Technology

Google Apps for Education
Stony Brook uses Google Apps for Education as its main communications and collaboration platform for email, calendar, shared documents, spreadsheets, presentations, instant messaging, and more. The benefits of using a Google Apps for Education account through Stony Brook rather than a personal Gmail account include a larger mail quota (25 GB), an integrated campus directory, the ability to use an email address on resumes and job applications, and no advertisements in email.


Computer & Software Discounts
All registered Stony Brook University students have the opportunity to purchase Dell, Apple, HP, or Lenovo computers at discounted, educational prices. Students are also offered Symantec AntiVirus and Microsoft Office at no additional charge (costs are included in the technology fee). For more information, visit the Division of Information Technology Web site.
