Graduating? Your UBmail goes with you

Published April 26, 2017

Graduation is just the beginning, and many of your UB experiences will stay with you for life.

Kenneth Kashif Thomas (UB Student, Class of 2017) is an Economics major with an interest in Journalism. He is the 2016-17 Senior Features Editor of the UB Spectrum student newspaper.

The same is true for your UBmail, which will allow you to retain your prestigious buffalo.edu address and keep in touch with classmates and instructors long after you leave campus.

To retain your UBmail, simply log in with your UBITName and password once every 90 days.

You will receive a reminder to log in after 60 days of inactivity, and another two weeks prior to 90 days. If you go the full three months without logging in to UBmail, your account will be deactivated. But don’t worry! Simply opt in to reactivate and continue service.

If you forward your emails to another address or email app, don’t forget you still need to log in directly to UBmail to continue using your @buffalo.edu address.

Graduation is not the end, for you or for UBmail!
