UA Email

Effective Feb. 1, 2022, an update to the University’s Terms of Use for Computer Accounts to provide enhanced security and efficient management of information technology systems and resources will require the changes to University email accounts upon separation from the University. Visit the HR website for more information.

UA-Managed File Storage Softwares

Access to shared drives, cloud storage, and university-provided software ends upon retirement and/or termination of employment. Employees with files they wish to keep should move these files to a personal storage device or account before terminating employment.

If you use Box or OneDrive to store any personal data, you will need to create a personal account using a personal email address – not an address. Once the personal account is created, you can move personal files to the account. Remember, you should never sync folders that contain sensitive or private information to computers not owned and managed by UA. In addition, all UA proprietary or confidential material must be removed from the account upon leaving the University.

Software Request for Continued Affiliation

In the event a faculty member retires from The University of Alabama and will remain affiliated with the University by participating in research, University operations, advising, and/or academic programs, the retired faculty member may request access to certain OIT systems for a specific period of time, typically one academic year. Visit the Academic Affairs website for more information.
