Calendar Sharing Settings: The default sharing setting at UCSC is that your Google Calendar and meetings are visible to everyone at UCSC, including students. If you would like a more private calendar, adjust your Google Calendar privacy/sharing settings.

If you create a private meeting in Google Calendar and invite people, those attendees can change the private meeting to public only visible on their calendar. Still, there could be privacy concerns. It's good practice not to put any confidential or personal information in the event title or description. More information about keeping your private meetings private
