Email Access for UW Alumni
This document discusses the email services available to UW-Madison alumni.
Beginning on June 30th, 2016, any student who is either an alumni, withdrawn, or no longer continuing with the university, will retain access to their UW-Madison Microsoft 365 account.
- Note: The Microsoft 365 license grants you access to email, calendar, tasks, and contacts; it does not extend to other Microsoft 365 applications such as OneDrive and OneNote. For more information, please see Microsoft 365 - Reduced access to services due to an affiliation change.
- Note: Students that had graduated prior to the migration to Microsoft 365, were not migrated and did not retain their account.
Prior to October 2021, the UW Alumni Association provided free alumni email services hosted by Google. Due to changes in Google's terms and policies, they are no longer accepting new requests..
For information on this service, see the UW Alumni Email Page.
- Note: Accounts that were created through the UW Alumni Association are not supported by the DoIT Help Desk.
- Note: Visit the Gmail Help Center for technical support of your G Suite account. The Wisconsin Alumni Association does not provide technical support for G Suite/Gmail but does administer the accounts and can assist with basic issues such as password resets and name changes. You can contact the Alumni email administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
