Rowan University makes Google Apps for Education, including Google Drive, available for faculty, staff and students.

Google Drive is readily available on any device using your favorite web browser such as Google Chrome or Internet Explorer. You can also install the desktop and mobile application to easily access your files from your computer or mobile device.


  • Unlimited free storage space
  • Works on PC and Mac computers and iOS and Android mobile devices
  • Powerful search capability

If you are currently using another cloud storage program such as Dropbox, Box, iCloud or OneDrive, to store your information, you are advised to transfer that information to Google Drive.

PLEASE NOTE: The Google Drive client for Mac/PC is being replaced with Google Drive File Stream. Drive File Stream is a new desktop application that allows you to quickly access all of your Google Drive files on demand, directly from your computer, meaning you use almost none of your hard drive space and spend less time waiting for files to sync.

The Google Drive client for Mac/PC will no longer be supported starting on Dec. 11, 2017, and it will shut down completely on March 12, 2018. 

We encourage you to use Drive File Stream and upgrade now if you currently have the old Google Drive client on your computer. This application lets you stream My Drive and Team Drive files directly from the cloud.

Google Drive File Stream

With Team Drives, Rowan University students and employees now have the ability to create shared files in Google Drive that belong to a group, rather than just one individual.

This means content ownership and sharing are managed at the team level, which ensures important data and documents are easily accessible at all times.  Files stored in a Team Drive will remain where they are, even if the team member who created the file leaves Rowan University.

This new feature also allows you to tailor permissions based on who you’d like to edit, comment, reorganize or delete certain files.

Start collaborating with your colleagues and classmates using Team Drives today.

Please note that Team Drive editors won’t be able to edit their Team Drive files when they’re opened in Drive File Stream; they’ll only be able to view them. To edit these files, they’ll need to open them in Drive on the web.
