Duration of student e-mail, Google services and Office 365
@stud.unive.it e-mail, connected Google apps and Office 365 services
The Gmail @stud.unive.it, issued to all Ca’ Foscari students together with the connected Google services (Drive, Calendar, etc.), is bound to the enrolment in a university programme.
The access to Office 365 services (Office suite, OneDrive, Teams, etc.) is elective and always bound to the enrolment in a university programme.
Starting from 1st December 2020, the e-mail @stud.unive.it will be deactivated for all Ca’ Foscari students and ex-students for whom 6 or more months have passed since graduation (e.g. Bachelor’s degree, Master’s degree, PhD). At the same time the access to Office 365 services will be deactivated, too.
- After graduation, the e-mail box, the connected Google services and Office 365 services will remain active for further 6 months. If during this period you decide to continue studying at Ca’ Foscari by enrolling in another study programme, your e-mail address along with the other services will remain active; if you do not enrol in a new study programme, your e-mail will be deactivated along with the other services.
- In case of withdrawal from studies, the e-mail, connected Google services and Office 365 services will be deactivated the day after the suspension/end of the degree course.
If you do not formally withdraw from your studies but do not enrol in new academic years, your e-mail, the other Google apps and Office 365 services will be deactivated after 4 years without enrolling at the university.
- After 1/12/2020, no prior notice will be sent regarding the deactivation of the e-mail, Google apps and Office 365 services, except for an expiry reminder sent to graduating students.
The university account required for login to the reserved area with matriculation number and password will in any case remain active, for example to download certificates.
Change your password
Remember that you must change the password of your account every 6 months.
If you do not change your password, your @stud.unive.it e-mail will still remain active, but you will not be able to log in until you have recovered your password.
Notify your contacts
From the moment of deactivation, the @stud.unive.it e-mail will no longer receive any e-mails.
Therefore, before it is closed, we recommend that you notify your contacts that your university e-mail address will no longer be available.
Save and transfer your data
You can find all the instructions on how to export your Google Account data on the page https://takeout.google.com.
Especially if you intend to withdraw or suspend your studies or if you are about to graduate, before the end of your course, we recommend that you save and transfer any data (information stored in your mailbox, documents stored in connected Google apps such as Drive, Calendar, etc.).
