Email For Life

The UM Alumni Association proudly offers alumni an email address that lasts a lifetime.

Email For Life is an address at the domain that lasts a lifetime. No more worrying about sending friends and colleagues a new address each time you change internet service providers. Plus, it's a great way to show your Hurricane pride! Along with your UM email, you also have access to the full Office 365 suite.

Recently graduated?

Have you recently graduated and your UM email is already active? No other action is necessary for you to keep your existing UM email.

How do I ensure my UM email stays active? Be sure to log in to your email at at least once a year for your account to remain active.
