Alumni Frequently Asked Questions


Upon request EUI Alumni are entitled to:

  • EUI alumni email account as specified under point 2.
  • On-site access to the EUI Library during regular opening hours and borrowing rights. Due to copyright laws, alumni cannot have remote access to online academic journals and other paid-for (pay-walled) resources; they may use them only while they are physically on campus.

Former EUI researchers, fellows, professors and staff who have been at the EUI for at least 12 months may request one of the following EUI accounts, according to their affiliation:

  • for graduated EUI PhD or LLM researchers and graduates of the Master in Transnational Governance (MTnG) and MRes in Economics
  • for former EUI professors

  1. Graduates of EUI’s PhD, LLM, MTnG or MRes in Economics ([email protected])
  2. Former EUI Professors ([email protected])
  3. Former EUI Fellow ([email protected])
  4. Any other former EUI member at the EUI for at least 12 months ([email protected])

In order to get an EUI alumni email account you just have to fill the online request form.

Only current EUI researchers and members of staff can have an account. However, emails sent to your account will be automatically delivered to the new address, and you will be able to keep the existing inbox and archived folders from your original account.

A few months after the account expiration it and all contents are removed. Before the expiration you will receive an email notification, informing you about the upcoming expiration date. In case you are entitled to receive a new Alumni account you can request it by filling in the online request form. You can ask for support to make sure your emails are moved to your new Alumni account before your expiring EUI account is removed.

All administrative users will be allowed to forward their emails to another mailbox for a limited amount of time. The forwarding is on request (even if you have requested a “former EUI” account).

Academic users will automatically keep receiving all their emails without disruption and time limit.


Under the new alumni policy, your library card and access rights will remain active for six months after your defence.

If you have graduated from the EUI less than six months ago, your Library user privileges are still active. 

If instead you are not a recent graduate, you will need to plan your visit and Library research in advance. If you have not activated an email account in one of the alumni domains, you should do so 3 to 5 days prior to your visit.  Once you are at the EUI and have an active alumni email account, you may request the EUI card at the Badia. There is a 5€ processing fee for the card, and they must be picked up in person at the Badia Control Room (Monday to Friday, 10.30-12.30 in the morning and 14.00-15.30 in the afternoon). 

Once you have your card, you may enter the Library.

If you choose not to activate an alumni account, you may apply to the Library as an external user following their procedure (allow at least 10 days for processing).

You can request a new email account in one of the alumni account domains. Your old emails and folders will be transferred to the new domain address. 

In addition to giving you continued access to the emails you saved in your account, an active alumni email account is required to obtain an EUI alumni card.

The alumni card is necessary for on-site access to the Library and selected Library resources. Credit may be added to the alumni card for canteen and bar purchases. Please note that the card does not function as a key for EUI entrances and exits.

No. It is not possible to activate an alumni domain and receive an EUI alumni card in one day. If you will be visiting the Badia and plan to request a card during your visit, you should request your alumni e-mail account 3 to 5 days prior to your visit.  

In addition to your EUI email account you will have continued access to OneDrive, Teams, Multifactor Authentication and the online version of Office 365, reachable at Your installed Office version will be available to read documents but not for editing.

Any privately purchased print quota will be transferred seamlessly to your new affiliation status however, any EUI provided print quota will not be carried over.
