Alumni email/data account changes: Due to changes to Google's agreement with Universities, the University of Waikato is moving away from Google services. As a part of this change the University will be deactivating alumni email/data accounts for those who have not been enrolled in the past 180 days. Affected accounts will be deactivated from 14 August 2023. If you are alumni AND a currently enrolled student, your account will not be deactivated. Please keep an eye out for communications about moving away from Google later this year. For more information, please visit our Google Account Lifecycle Changes.
