What to do about your account when leaving U-M:
- Leaving the U or Retiring?
If you are leaving the university, you will lose access to some or all of your computing services depending on your university affiliation.
- Managing Your Digital Files and Information When You Leave U-M
Information to help you transition files, messages, and other digital data that you want to keep if you will lose access to U-M computing services when you leave the university.
- What Happens to Your Uniqname, Directory Profile, and Computing Services After You Leave U-M
Whether you can continue to use your uniqname, MCommunity Directory profile, and U-M computing services after leaving U-M depends on your current affiliation.
In cases where ownership of digital files and information is not transferred before an employee leaves the university—or when a U-M account holder becomes incapacitated or dies—units and others may need access to that information for U-M business reasons. In rare cases, people with a personal relationship to the account holder may want to retrieve personal materials held in a U-M account.
