NYU Graduates: Keep Your NYUHome and Email Service!

NYU Information Technology Services and the Office for University Development and Alumni Relations are pleased to announce that recent alumni and future NYU graduates will continue to have access to their NYUHome and web-based NYU e-mail service indefinitely.

As part of this new benefit, your NYUHome service will remain active after you complete your studies or leave the University, provided that your account continues to show activity at least once every six months. So, no matter where life takes you, you can retain your connection to NYU through your email address and access to NYUHome. Additional information is available on the ITS website at: http://www.nyu.edu/its/accounts/gradfaq.html
