Account Expiration

All accounts at St. Thomas expire based on university policy. 

  • Faculty: 30 days after university records indicate that the faculty member is no longer an active employee
  • Staff: Last day worked

Our automated system sends account holders email notifications of their account closure prior to expiration. Once accounts are expired access to network resources such as email and files will be lost. Please note that purged accounts cannot be recreated, nor can data from them be restored.
