How do I keep my UBMail after I graduate?

Did you graduate in May 2014 or later?
You automatically keep your UBMail; your account will remain active as long as you log in to your UBMail at least once every 90 days. If you do not log in at least once every 90 days, your UBMail will be deactivated. You may opt-in again using this form to regain access to UBMail at any time.

  • If you forward your UBMail to another service, you still must log in to your UBMail for it to remain active. Log in here.
  • If you do not want to keep your UBMail and don't want to wait 90 days for automatic deactivation, you may opt-out using this form.
  • If you did not meet the criteria for UB graduation, your UBMail will deactivate.

Did you graduate between January 1998 and February 2014?
To activate your UBMail powered by Google, you’ll need to opt-in here. If you are an alumnus employed by UB or a current student, you will simply continue using your UBmail.

Did you graduate before 1998 and do you already have a UBITName?
You can opt in or reactivate UBMail by using this form. If you don’t remember your UBMail password, learn how to reset it. Faculty and staff are not eligible for UBMail Powered by Google, even if they are alumni.

Did you work for UB?
UB employees who are leaving the university and who are also alumni may opt-in to keep their UBMail. Once your faculty or staff status has been terminated, consult your support staff to have your mailbox converted to UBMail Powered by Google.

I'm not receiving correspondence or email from UB: how do I change this?

Our records may indicate that you requested not to receive any communication from UB, or we may have outdated contact information for you. If you would like to start receiving information from UB, contact us. When you do, you also can register on UB Connect, the online community exclusively for UB alumni.

I would like to update my contact information with UB.

Whenever you have a change to your contact information (home or email address, job title, phone number, work address), you can make updates through UB Connect, the online community exclusively for UB alumni. All you have to do is register, find your profile and make your updates. Or contact us and we will be happy to update your record for you.

I do not wish to receive any communication from UB.

I want to register on UB Connect, but I can’t find my name in the search results.

Search for your name using last name and first initial only. If your name has changed since you graduated, try searching by your student last name. If you still have trouble, contact us.
