UROnline is how we stay connected to you, and how you can stay connected with your classmates and fellow graduates. We hope that you’ll keep your email address up-to-date to recieve updates from us. And it’s easy to activate your “email for life” after graduating — visit the Alumni SSO Portal to activate and manage your UR email address.

Preparing for Commencement
