See how changes to your official affiliation, such as retirement or leaving UB, affect the UBIT services you can access.
Your official affiliation is dependent on having a current faculty, staff or volunteer appointment in records at Human Resources.
If you continue to be employed by UB and you receive email that says, "Notice: Your UBIT Services are Changing," your appointment at Human Resources (HR) may have lapsed or there may have been a delay in submitting or processing your new appointment.
Contact an administrative staff member in your department. Ask them to contact the CIT Help Desk to confirm their intent to renew your appointment and request a temporary extension to allow time for an appointment to be processed.
Once the CIT Help Desk processes their request, your UBITName will retain access to UBIT services up to 60 days pending processing of a new appointment by HR. Once an appointment is processed by HR, your UBITName will retain access to UBIT services for the length of your appointment.
Contact UB Human Resources (HR) to begin the official retirement process. When UB Human
Resources changes your status to official retiree:
Contact an administrative staff member in your department. Ask them to contact the CIT Help Desk to confirm their intent to allow you to keep your UB email as a retiree.
Once the CIT Help Desk confirms your status with your department
and processes the request:
Employees leaving UB who are not retiring retain access to UBIT
services until their appointment is terminated by UB Human
Resources (HR). Update contacts that may be sending email to your
UB email address. Once you leave, email messages sent to your
UBITName will be returned as undelivered.
Employees leaving UB who have previously graduated from UB may
be eligible to opt in with the Alumni Association to retain access
to UBmail for life.
Faculty and staff using UBmail Powered by Exchange that opt in for UBmail Powered by Google for Alumni should contact their department's IT support node for assistance migrating to UBmail Powered by Google.
If you do not opt in for UBmail Powered by Google for Alumni, you will lose access to all UBIT services. For more information, see Leaving UB (Non-Retirees).
