Student UWG Email
Every student at UWG is automatically provided with a free Google Apps account and free personal webspace. The Google Apps account includes access to your University email as well as many of the apps that Google provides. Your email address is made up of your UWG ID (currently your MyUWG username) followed by "@my.westga.edu." For example, "firstname.lastname@example.org." Google sets a maximum quota of 30GB of storage for all Google Apps data includinge email. The maximum single file attachment size limit is 25MB per email message (Please Note: Not all email systems will receive messages that are 25MB in size). For more information regarding your free personal webspace, select "Web Publishing" from the menu on the right.
