OHIO on the web: Replacing ohiou.edu with ohio.edu

Published: 09/06/2018

To support the University’s decision to brand itself exclusively as “OHIO," OIT will retire the ohiou.edu internet domain in favor of ohio.edu on Dec. 21, 2018. This transition has been under way for several years. All but a handful of websites and services have already switched to the now-familiar ohio.edu suffix, and two years ago Catmail stopped allowing ohiou.edu as a ‘from’ address on outgoing email.  

From December 21, 2018 through June 30, 2019, ohiou.edu web addresses will redirect to a page that informs visitors of the name change and recommends that they replace “ohiou.edu” with “ohio.edu” in the address they were trying to reach.  

If you have any correspondents who still use the @ohiou.edu version of your email address, please ask those individuals to update their address books to use @ohio.edu before December 21. To facilitate this process, Catmail will start adding a notice about the change to the top of all incoming @ohiou.edu messages in mid-September. 

If you have any questions, please contact the IT Service Desk.
