Villanova will join Notre Dame, Vanderbilt, Northwestern and countless other universities in offering Gmail accounts to students by fall 2010, according to Chief Information Officer Stephen Fugale. The accounts will remain Villanova-based, but unlike the current accounts with the Microsoft Exchange service, they will be free, lifelong e-mail accounts for as long as Google offers Gmail.

With Gmail, students will have greater e-mail storage as well as access to Google calendars and all of the most up-to-date Google Apps.
