Software, Alumni Email, Etc.

The following information is for Before you graduate. Software: Students can download a graduation copy of Microsoft Office while at Duke. This must be done before you graduate.

The following information is for Before and After you graduate.

  • Alumni Email Forwarding: You can request a Duke alumni forwarding email address and then use Duke OneLink – a service that allows alumni to sign in to select Duke online systems.
  • NetID: Student access to NetID services will remain active for one year after their graduation date. Learn more about NetID access for graduates.
  • Leaving Duke: Visit the OIT website to learn more about general access after a student leaves the university.
  • OneLink: Duke OneLink is a service that allows alumni and friends to sign in to select Duke online systems. OneLink requires registration so that Duke can associate your OneLink credentials with a new or existing Duke account. Learn more about OneLink.
  • Work: If you will be staying on to work in some informal capacity after you graduate, you can ask your sponsor to request continued physical and electronic access – although most of your NetID privileges will stay in effect for a year.

If you need help with Duke OIT services, a representative can be reached by phone, live chat or visit their offices

Library Services

A selection of library resources is available to all alumni through your Duke OneLink account. If you are continuing to work with a faculty member for research purposes, you may retain full access; learn more about sponsorship options. Please contact our library representative with any questions or for additional information.
