Migrating remaining on-premises shared and generic Connect accounts to Microsoft 365

Monday, June 6, 2022

What is happening? Remaining on-premises shared and generic Connect accounts (excluding those in Computer Science) will be migrated to Microsoft 365 by the end of July 2022.

What do I need to do? 

  • Department and Faculty IT contacts and IST Account Reps will receive email communication about this work, including a list of accounts, migration dates, and action items, approximately three or four weeks before the migration date.
  • Shared and generic Connect accounts will receive email communication about this work approximately two weeks before the migration date, and a reminder 1-2 days before the account is migrated. 

  • Communications will outline the post-migration steps and link to necessary support resources. 

Questions or concerns? Please contact the IST Service Desk, helpdesk@uwaterloo.ca.
