Alumni Email Forwarding

The Office of Alumni Relations offers email forwarding as an alum benefit! Registering for email forwarding provides you with a single permanent Williams email alias where people can always reach you after graduation. It allows you to hide your personal email address while using a Williams branded domain.

  • On July 1, you will lose access to your Williams email account. This includes Google Drive, Calendar, and Photos. Account data will be permanently deleted shortly after and will NOT be recoverable.
  •  Email Forwarding will start on July 1. If you are not registered for email forwarding at that time, emails to your @williams.edu email address will bounce back to the sender.

Please note that both [email protected] or [email protected] will forward to your personal email address once you register for email forwarding. Make sure all of your friends, professors, potential employers, acquaintances, etc. know about this transition so that they may update their address books. Also, remember that email forwarding is NOT an email account. You will not be able to log into an account and send emails from your @williams.edu alias. It will only forward emails to the personal .email address when you register for this service.
