Alumni email services

Stay in touch with the University and your friends with our free alumni email or email for life forwarding services.

Alumni Email Service

Alumni who graduated from an undergraduate and postgraduate taught programme in summer 2013 or later can access a free alumni email account. This also applies to PGR's who completed after 6 February 2019. You can use it as a professional email for business correspondence as well as for staying in touch with University academics and friends. 

The alumni email address is easy to remember because it is based on your student email but with the word 'alumni' added. For example, becomes You will still be able to receive email on your old email address e.g but sending email from this account will be sent from the email address

Email for life forwarding service

Alumni who graduated before 2013 can use our free email for life forwarding service.

The advantages of having an email forwarding address are:

Please note, the forwarding address is not an 'account' which you can log into and manage. Any responses you make to emails will be from your personal email account. It does not give you access to previous student emails.

If you update your personal email address you will need to complete the forwarding email form (contained within the link below) for the new email to be updated on the forwarding service.
