For important information regarding the status of all Weitzman IT accounts of graduating, continuing, and temporary students, see the checklists below:

If you are graduating this May:

  • School of Design Account: Please back up any data in your home folder. Your School of Design Account and all its data will be permanently deleted on June 18th (06/18). If you need files from a course folder, please make sure to download them beforehand, or request access via an instructor or department coordinator.

  • PennO365 Account: Your email account (PENNKEY@design.upenn.edu), Office license, and OneDrive access will remain active for sixty (60) days after you graduate. After July 18th (07/18) the account and all data will be permanently deleted — no email will be received or forwarded from that address.
    As soon as possible, please complete the following; do not wait until the last minute:
  1. Back-up emails and contacts (instructions: https://www.design.upenn.edu/it/email)
  2. Back-up any data stored in OneDrive;
  3. Update email settings on all accounts (e.g. Amazon, job postings) with a non-Design address.
  • Alumni Email:  The University is pleased to offer graduating students the option to set up a new lifetime email account (PENNKEY@alumni.upenn.edu) through the Department of Alumni Relations. For more information, visit the Quaker Gmail FAQ: https://www.alumni.upenn.edu/quakergmail
  • Penn+Box: Move your data from Penn+Box before Commencement, May 20th (05/20). The University will deactivate these accounts on this date, and all data will be permanently deleted.  

Note: If you will be working for the School of Design in any capacity after graduation, accounts may be extended depending on your status. Please contact School of Design ITS (ithelp@design.upenn.edu) for more information.

If you are a non-Design student taking a class this semester:

  • School of Design Account: Your Design account and any data stored in it will be permanently deleted on May 20th (05/20). If you need files from a course folder, please make sure to download them beforehand.

If you are returning in the fall:

  • Weitzman Account: Your Weitzman account will remain active over the summer. If you need files from a Spring 2019 course folder, please make sure to download them before May 21st (05/21). After that date course folders will be archived on Penn+Box. To request access to an archived course folder, please see your instructor or department coordinator.

  • Lab Computer Storage: As a reminder, "Local Data" drives on all lab/public computers are intended for temporary data storage only. All data should be stored in Design-supported storage solutions (e.g. home folder, Penn+Box, OneDrive).

IT Staff will format these "Local Data" drives during lab maintenance over the summer, and this data will be permanently deleted.
