Can I keep my UW email after I graduate?
We have good news for you, UW Alum. If you have already set up your UW Windows Live and/or UW Google email accounts, you will have access to UW emails, UW Live and UW Google resources even after you leave UW. For more information, or to learn how to activate your UW Windows Live or UW Google account, please visit the UW Alumni Association webpage.
What happens to my e-mail and NetID when I graduate?
First off, your UW NetID is yours for life. You'll also be able to continue to send and receive e-mails from your UW e-mail address as well as access other UW online services, such as UW Alumni Association programs and ordering transcripts online. However, to continue your service uninterrupted, you'll want to follow the instructions provided by UW Technology. They will contact you a few weeks before your student services expire (usually about one quarter after you graduate). The e-mail notice will explain in detail which services do and do not expire. Typically, your storage space will be reduced and you will no longer have access to publish a web page, access UW Libraries databases, etc. For more information, please visit the UW Alumni Association Online Services - Email and More webpage.
Alumni and friends can access streaming audio versions of notable lectures by top UW professors and guests, as well as highlights from special events, ceremonies, celebrations and more!
