Deactivation, When are accounts deactivated or disabled for staff?
I received a deactivation notice saying my account will be terminated. I can't activate my email account.
If you are no longer on the Urbana campus payroll, your UIUC email account and other network services will be discontinued within 30 days after you leave.
Technology Services will send a notice to your firstname.lastname@example.org email address 7 days before your email account is deactivated. After deactivation,
your account will no longer accept incoming mail; you may forward new
email from your @illinois.edu address to a different email account, using the
Electronic Directory, for one year. Instructions for using the UIUC
electronic directory forwarding service can be found
If you still have an active appointment on the Urbana campus, the Technology Services Help Desk can temporarily reinstate your account access. The Help Desk will need to see a copy of your current Electronic Change of Status (ECOS) appointment paperwork or a letter from your department verifying your appointment.
This information can be faxed to the Help Desk at
(217) 333-4368, or you may bring it in to Room 1211 Digital Computer
Lab, 1304 W. Springfield Ave., Urbana, IL 61801.
If you have further questions, please contact the Technology Services Help Desk.
