A UGent account remains valid as long as you have a statute at the university.
When your statute expires, your account will be closed automatically,
unless you have another valid statute.
Notification by e-mail
When your statute is expired a transition period of 10 days begins. Three days after expiration of your statute
an e-mail is automatically sent with subject 'Afsluiten UGent account'. Seven days after the closing mail your
account will be terminated.
During the transitional period your mailbox and shares stay accessible.
For 'UZ staff' and 'visitors' with a sloping statute the closing mail is sent immediately after the expiry of the statute.
'UGent staff' whose employment statute expires shall be notified even 1 week beforehand by e-mail with subject
A statute of 'voluntary worker' always expire on 1 October.
Setting a forward for 1 year
E-mail messages that are sent to a disabled account, will be bounced by default.
The e-mail will be returned to sender because the e-mail address is invalid.
For the moment the standard bounce is not working in Exchange.
Prior to the effective closure of your account, you can use webmail to forward
your mails to another e-mail address ('forward'). This setting remain active for 1 year.
For the moment a forward is not working in Exchange after the end of your statute!
Send us an e-mail with the forward address and we do this for you.
You keep your account until you leave the Ghent University. When you graduate and/or
not re-enroll for the next academic year, the account will be disabled in late October,
shortly after the end of the subscription period. However, you retain access to OASIS,
making a late enrollment can still be monitored through this system.
All alumni of UGent maintain the possibility to forward e-mail for maximum 1 year after completing their studies.
At the beginning of the academic year, there is a limited transition period to take care of your re-enrolment.
