UW Libraries & database access

Everyone is welcome to visit the UW Libraries (Bothell, Seattle & Tacoma) to use books, journals, and most other materials while in the library. 

While your UW NetID is permanent, library borrowing privileges and computer access expire when you graduate. UWAA members, however, are eligible for a UW Libraries Borrower's Card and online access to the EBSCO Academic Search Alumni Edition database. Non-UWAA members and the general public may access UW research databases through guest research stations located within UW Libraries.

UW email & computing services

In December 2017, UW-IT announced a change to alumni access to UW email and computing services as part of the UW Email Modernization Program.

Alumni and former students are no longer eligible for UW email and computing services, including UW Gmail, UW Google Suite, UW Deskmail, UW Exchange Online, and UW Outlook Live. Access to these accounts ended and all data was deleted, effective July 31, 2018. Ability to access or log in with your UW NetID is not affected, nor is your ability to forward your UW email address to a private email service at any time. UW-IT has created a resource page to help alumni navigate this change. For additional assistance, contact the UW-IT Service Center at help@uw.edu or (206) 221-5000.

Note to graduating and departing students: On the 10th day of the second quarter in which you are not registered as a student, you will receive an email notification that your UW email account and computing services will expire in 14 days. Learn what steps you will need to take by reviewing this resource page.
