Alumni Accounts

Alumni CalNet Account

Alumni are eligible to keep the same CalNet account. That account provides login access to:

  • School of Information resources, including:
    • I School Intranet
    • I School career services
  • Berkeley campus resources, including:
    • Transcripts
    • Job and internship postings
    • Berkeley Career Center alumni career services
    • Lifelong learning
    • Berkeley alumni directory through the alumni portal

Your CalNet account will remain active after you graduate — but you must log into your CalNet account regularly in order to keep it. Alumni CalNet accounts will be deactivated after six months of inactivity (not logging in).

If you have trouble logging in to your CalNet account, you can change your passphrase at

If you need further assistance with your CalNet account, email for assistance.

Email & bConnected Account

New alumni are eligible to maintain their Berkeley email accounts. This will be the same account you used as a student, including both your and email addresses. Alumni email access is provided by Berkeley’s University Development and Alumni Relations department.

In order to keep your account active, you must renew your account before the end of your nine-month grace period & renew your account annually. If your account lapses, it will not be reenabled.

Current students

Students will not be able to renew their accounts until after they have graduated.

New graduates

New graduates will be able to renew their accounts after the campus has recorded your graduation — about one month after the end of your last semester. You must renew your account after your graduation has been recorded and before the end of your nine-month grace period.

Previous graduates

This service is available only to alumni who currently have active bConnected accounts. If you graduated before alumni bConnected accounts were available or if you allowed your account to lapse before September 2023, the campus alumni relations team will not create or recreate an account for you.

If you had an active alumni account as of September 2023, you will need to renew your account and meet new quota limits ASAP. Unrenewed accounts will be deleted beginning October 15, 2024.

Renew your alumni email account

Alumni accounts have a 5 GB storage quota. Storage quotas count the combined storage in Gmail and Google Drive. Multi-factor authentication is required.

If you have another current affiliation (current student, employee, visiting scholar, etc.), you will not be able to sign up for alumni email until that affiliation ends.
