Do I Get to Keep My University Email Account?


Do I get to keep my email account after I leave or graduate from the university?


The amount of time you can directly access your email account after leaving the university depends on your affiliation. For example, students retain login access to their UO email for one year after their last term of eligibility to enroll. For other groups, see the Affiliation Resource Access Rules.

Lifelong access of UO email accounts are only available to retired employees. Accordingly, university alumni do not maintain direct access to their UO email account forever. However, if they graduated in or after 2018, they can set up a lifetime email forward before their direct email access expires. The forward will route mail sent to their UO address to a personal account. Please see Lifetime Email Forward for Graduating Students FAQ for more information.
