I see that when creating an Office 365 Group that a calendar is also automatically created for that group and that it appears in the list of calendars for all members of the Group regardless of their follow status of the group.

 

My users would rather not have any calendars for Groups. How can I remove or hide them for the members of the Group?

You cannot. Groups are a "package" deal, if you don't need/want any of the additional functionalities (Calendar, Planner, Site, etc), simply don't use Groups. A shared mailbox or a "traditional" DG is still a viable solution.

@Vasil Michev Thank you. The key attraction for us is simply having the mail box and the flexibility of the "following" or not. We can just ignore the calendar and other goodies.
