Alumni UTmail+
Alumni UTmail+ is the alumni add-on to UTmail+ first introduced with the class of 2012. Once you graduate from UofT, you will be given an @alum.utoronto.ca address in addition to your @mail.utoronto.ca address. Messages sent to your student address will be forwarded to your alumni address for at least 2 years after graduation to allow you to alert your contacts

@alumni.utoronto

Getting Alumni UTmail+

If you have a UTmail+ account and graduated any time after June of 2012 your firstname.lastname@alum.utoronto.ca will be created automatically. To access your Alumni UTmail+ account, log in at mail.utoronto.ca with your UTORid and password or follow the instructions provided below to set up email on a mobile or desktop device.
