How are Gmail and Google Workspace (formerly G Suite) different?
Google Workspace includes Gmail and several other tools. While you can continue to use your own Gmail account if you like, it will be completely separate from your G Suite account.
Your own personal Gmail account will also include advertising. Your Google Workspace account will not have any advertising until you leave the university.

If you have a personal Google account associated with your cornell.edu email address, the first time you sign in to any Google product after you are provisioned with a Google Workspace account, you'll be prompted to resolve the conflict between accounts. We recommend removing the association between your Cornell address and your non-Google Workspace account.
Google has a help page describing your choices for resolving the multiple account situation.
