The following email will be sent tomorrow to alumni who signed up for a Microsoft Office 365 account directly through Microsoft with their @uwaterloo.ca email address. This communication was drafted in collaboration with the Alumni Office.

Subject: One Drive/Microsoft Office 365 student account


While you were a student at the University of Waterloo, you registered for a Microsoft Office 365 account which was offered to students directly by Microsoft.

The University of Waterloo has a license agreement with Microsoft, which is only valid for current students. We are contacting you to alert you that the Microsoft Office 365 account that you created while you were a student will expire in 30 days (December 17). After that date, you will no longer have access to your student OneDrive storage which was included with this Office 365 account. Also, any copies of Office 365 applications (Word, Excel, etc.) that were installed using your account will not reactivate at next check in.

If you have a personal Office 365 account, the following link from Microsoft provides documentation to migrate your student Office 365 account and files to your personal Office 365 account. If you don't yet have a personal account, a discount is offered through Microsoft for graduates who would like to create one. https://products.office.com/en-CA/student-graduation-offer?ms.officeurl=studentgraduation. The documentation includes instructions about email that you can disregard.

If you have any questions, please contact the IST Service Desk, 519-888-4567, ext. 44357, or helpdesk at uwaterloo.ca<mailto:helpdesk at uwaterloo.ca>.
