Niagara University Usage

Niagara University uses e-mail as an official method of communication. Students are responsible for checking their University e-mail regularly. Official Niagara University e-mails may be sent by faculty and staff.

Niagara University instructors may set guidelines in the classroom defining how students use email in their course.  

The disciplinary rules for e-mail may be found in the Student Code of Conduct [link], the RESNET Acceptable Use Policy, and the Acceptable Use of Electronic Resources policy [link].


Niagara University student email accounts are generated and purged automatically based on enrollment status.  Students will keep their account for one year after their withdrawal or graduation, after which they will be purged.  Once purged, accounts cannot be created again unless the student enrolls at Niagara.
