2013 Graduates: Accounts close August 8

2013 Graduates, remember to pack your digital suitcase.  

The Office of Information Technology offers a tool to help graduating students pack their digital material so they can take it with them after graduation. The Digital Suitcase is available online at; an active Princeton netID is required to use this tool.

NetIDs for students graduating in June 2013 will be terminated on August 8, 2013. Upon termination, students will no longer have access to campus computing resources, including files stored on OIT servers and the Digital Suitcase tool.

To prepare for this departure from OIT services and the closing of University accounts, students should:

  • copy files stored on OIT servers to their computer (this can include H: drive files, WebSpace files, email messages).
  • set up e-mail forwarding to continue to receive mail sent to their account and any departmental accounts while transitioning to a new e-mail account. Forwarding service continues for one year from account closing.
  • for Windows computers that have joined the Princeton domain, remove their computer from the Princeton domain and update the source for Windows Updates.
  • remove institutional software.
