Information for Departing WPI

Data Backup

WPI Email

Exchange online items can be saved by using the Outlook client to create a personal folder or Outlook Data File (with the file extension .pst). After creating the personal folder and moving items into it, you can save it on your computer or portable media.


Back up any important files from your WPI OneDrive or personal network share. WPI file storage is only available to active WPI account holders, and data will not be restored once the account is deactivated. Move files to your local hard drive, portable media, or personal cloud storage.

Access files in your Storage drive at \\\HOME\My_Documents by mapping a network drive.

WPI Computers

Back up any data saved on campus computers. Login to these computers will discontinue when your WPI account is discontinued.


Microsoft Campus Licensing Agreement

Campus licensed software will not be accessible once your WPI account is removed.

Network Software

Courseware and other networked software installed on personal computers will not function once the personal computer is removed from the WPI network due to the dependency on WPI license servers. It is recommended that courseware be safely uninstalled prior to disconnecting the device from the WPI network.

WPI Computers

Applications on campus computers including labs, public spaces, and classrooms will no longer be accessible once your WPI login credentials are discontinued.
