Transfer your calendar from Umail to Google at IU

Umail at IU (former students only) is scheduled to be retired on November 19, 2019. Once the service is discontinued, you will no longer be able to access your Umail account and its associated services (for example, email, Drive files, Sites).
  • As of August 13, 2018, current IU students can no longer access or transfer Umail calendars. For assistance, contact your campus Support Center.
  • Former students or alumni who separated from IU before March 11, 2018 may continue to use Umail and all associated Google apps (Drive, calendar, etc.) until further notice.

To transfer a Umail calendar to Google at IU, you'll first export your Umail calendar, and then import it into your Google calendar.
