Will my HarvardKey stop working when I graduate or leave Harvard?

Harvard’s “one identity for life” paradigm means that your HarvardKey remains valid even if you graduate or stop working at the University. If you are a graduating student, your HarvardKey will even automatically roll over to Alumni status upon your graduation, enabling you to access Harvard Alumni Association resources and benefits.

However, please note that changing the nature of your Harvard affiliation may mean losing access to some applications and services, even if your HarvardKey remains valid. For example, employees leaving the University may lose access to some PeopleSoft resources after their separation date, and departing students may lose access to resources affiliated to their degree program. If you feel that you have lost access to a specific resource in error, please contact that resource’s administrator directly for help; the HUIT Service Desk is usually unable to grant you access, since eligibility is determined by site owners.
