Change your registered work email address (suomeksi)


How to change your Eduuni-ID work email address 

You can change your Eduuni-ID work email address by doing the Eduuni-ID registration again. Registration can be found at http://id.eduuni.fi/signup/.

Changing the username of your email address

If you change the username of your email address (part before @ sign), your Eduuni-ID account remains the same. Also your permissions  remains the same in the Eduuni-services. Wait about 15 minutes after you have registered your new email address so that it has been updated to the Eduuni-services. You’ll get a new email message when update is completed.

To change the username of your Eduuni-ID email address

  1. Go to Eduuni-ID’s registration http://id.eduuni.fi/signup/ and select Start Sign up.
  2. If needed, select your sign in method and sign in. Use the same sign in method as before or a new Eduuni-ID account is created for you.
  3. After sign in you’ll see your current Eduuni-ID user info.
  4. Change your work email address and save information. You can also change other information at the same time.
  5. Confirm your work email address change if needed* by selecting a link from email confirmation message.
  6. Close all open browser windows so that your current Eduuni sign in information is deleted and you can sign in with new information.

*When using Haka-, Virtu and Office 365 (Azure AD) -sign-in methods the email address doesn’t need to be confirmed if the same email address information is sent from sign-in server.

If you changed the username of your email address, wait about 15 minutes before signing in to the Eduuni-services in order to populate the changes to the Eduuni-services. You’ll get an email message when your email address has updated to the Eduuni-services.


Changing the domain name of your email address


If you change your email domain (part after @ sign), your current Eduuni-ID account will be deleted and a new Eduuni-ID account is created for you. Your current permissions doesn’t move to your new account. You'll have to ask permissions to sites you need again from the site owner.


If your organisation is Finnish higher-education institution or in the Ministry of Education and Culture’s administrative sector and your organisation’s email domain has changed, contact Eduuni-support or your organisation’s Eduuni admin. Email domain change can then be made without deleting current account and redefining permissions.
