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.
