Office 365 Accounts

Eligibility for your UI email account will end two years after graduation. If you continue to take courses, your account closes two years after completion of your last class.  If you are employed at the university, your account will remain open.

Several notifications will be sent before the account closes to provide time to create a new account elsewhere and move messages you want to keep.

If you no longer wish to use your Office 365 account after graduation, you should contact the ITS Help Desk to have it closed. Prior to having the account closed, you will want to save all of your files from your OneDrive cloud storage and forward on any email you wish to keep.

If you have questions, please call the ITS Help Desk at 319-384-4357 or e-mail
