Obtaining an Account

Central Login Account information for graduate students will be mailed to students when they have accepted their offer of admission from Graduate Program Service.

Please note: As a graduate student, you have access to other IT services such as: Courselink and WebAdvisor.

Account Deletion

U of G graduate student accounts will be deleted one year after graduation.

Student accounts will also be deleted:

  • Following two years of inactivity for undergraduate students.
  • Following two semesters of inactivity for graduate students. 
  • At the end of the attending semester for students attending U of G on a Letter of Permission.

You will be notified by email approximately two weeks prior to your Central Login Account being deleted. 

If you have important emails, files or other information you wish to preserve, please backup your data before the targeted deletion date. For information on how to backup your Office 365 account data, please see https://www.uoguelph.ca/ccs/backup-your-office-365-data. If you have signed up for third-party services using your U of G email address or used it as your recovery email for a third-party service, please change your contact information with the third-party service before the targeted deletion date.
