Google Workspace Containment Ceilings

A containment ceiling was applied to all current faculty, staff, and students’ UCLA Google accounts — inclusive of individual Drives, Gmail and Photos, and Shared Drives — based on their current usage on December 15, 2023.​

A containment ceiling was applied to all alumni UCLA Google accounts – which will be reduced to Google Mail only – on March 7, 2024.​

The containment ceilings are above the account’s current usage to inhibit large storage growth. These ceilings were intentionally crafted to allow the community to continue to use Google Workspace without interruption.​

Containment ceilings are being enforced until June 27, 2024, when Permanent Baseline Quotas will be implemented and enforced.​
