Email4Life

Email4Life is a free email forwarding service available to all Chicago Booth alumni. Once you graduate, you can keep receiving messages to your Chicago Booth email address through the email service of your choice (Gmail, Yahoo!, Hotmail, etc.).

You only need to setup your email forwarding service once. Provide the email address you want to forward your Booth emails to and we will automatically set up the forwarding service for you.

Your Email4Life Password

Chicago Booth made using Email4Life even easier by removing the requirement to periodically reset your password. Starting June 2012, users can keep their current password - no need to reset it* and no more expiration notices.

Forgot your password?

Please go to the Booth Portal and click on the "Forgot your password?" link. If you have any problems, please contact Booth IT at helpdesk@ChicagoBooth.edu.

Received a password expiration notice?

If you recently received a password expiration email you may disregard the notice. No action is required on your part.

Protecting your information

If you ever believe your account has been compromised, you should reset your password immediately. Visit the Booth Portal and click on Reset Your Password on the right side of the screen.

Helpful Tip: Choose a different password for each of your accounts. This will help protect your information if one of your accounts is compromised.

ChicagoGSB.edu Email Change Notification

Starting June 1, 2012, Chicago Booth was required to stop using the ChicagoGSB.edu email domain by Educause - an organization that regulates higher education internet domain names. The ChicagoGSB.edu email domain is no longer associated with Chicago Booth and has been permanently deactivated.

Under Educause rules, all higher education institutions - including Chicago Booth - are permitted only one domain name, unlike commercial internet domains like .com or .net. Read more about the higher education domain regulations »
