Alumni Email for Life

Keep your Queen’s connections alive with a permanent Queen’s email address. As alumni, you can sign up for a permanent @queensu.ca email address.

For recent graduates (2013 and beyond) your student email automatically converts to a permanent email address. To keep your email service active, you must log into your account at least once per year. If you are only using your Queen's email account to forward mail to another address, then you will still need to log in to avoid loss of service.

For other alumni, you will need to reactivate your NetID to gain access to Alumni Email for Life.Instructions for reactivating your NETID.

Once your NetID is activated, you can log into Office 365 at this link. If you have completed the setup process and have issues with the activation/authentication process, please email to have us manually activate your email address.

Please contact the Alumni Office if you have any questions.

Tricolour Email Forwarding Service

We no longer offer the Tricolour Email Forwarding to new users, however, we will continue to support the service for current users for the foreseeable future. You may wish to switch to the @queensu.ca email available for Queen's alumni. If you are using the forwarding service and would like to update your email address please email us.
