Chicago Booth Alumni Email Accounts
Updated on February 21, 2024
Based on community feedback, we found a solution that allows us to continue offering alumni email, while also being responsive to Google’s security policy change. On February 1, 2024, we began transitioning to a new subdomain, and an alumni.chicagobooth.edu email address has been added to your account. The new alumni.chicagobooth.edu addresses align with both the Google security policy change and Booth’s internal email infrastructure.
The alumni.chicagobooth.edu email address will replace your current Booth address as of March 1, 2024. Please prepare for the shift by notifying your contacts and updating organizations that your address will be changing to either your @alumni.chicagobooth.edu address or an alternate email address.
Note: Until March 1, emails sent from your inbox will still be sent from the old subdomain (chicagobooth.edu), but emails sent to both of your email addresses (@chicagobooth.edu and @alumni.chicagobooth.edu) will appear in your inbox. After March 1, emails sent from your inbox will be sent from the new subdomain (alumni.chicagobooth.edu), and your new email address will appear at login. Additionally, emails sent to your old email address will be forwarded to your new email address, but deliverability may be unreliable due to the sender verification changes that are a part of Google's recent policy change.
We will be rolling out additional enhancements soon, which will be shared on this page.
Staying in Touch
Because of the new Google sender verification policy, forwarded emails may now be less reliable. For this reason, we strongly encourage you not to forward your alumni email to a separate personal email account. Loss of email due to continued forwarding is the responsibility of the account holder. If you would like to instead provide a new preferred non-Booth email address for all future communication, please update your contact information with us.
UChicago ITS Account Closures
Some alumni have recently received emails from the University of Chicago’s Information Technology Services regarding account closures. The closure of CNetID accounts by UChicago ITS does not affect Booth alumni email accounts.
All Booth students have separate university IT and Booth IT accounts. Any notifications from University IT Services relate to university accounts only. Recent graduates receive a two-quarter grace period before their account enters the closure process, which takes 45 days to complete. Please see this article and this FAQ for more information about the university’s account closure procedures.
Protecting Your Information
If you ever believe your account has been compromised, you should reset your password immediately.
Helpful tip: Choose a different password for each of your accounts. This will help protect your information if one of your accounts is compromised.
