Update to email for life for all University of Huddersfield graduates
In 2010 the University of Huddersfield introduced a new free service for its alumni - email for life.
This means that you can continue to use your student email account as an alumnus after you've graduated - at no cost to you.
Microsoft has now replacing the current service with Office 365 to give you access to a richer set of features and tools. For example, your alumni email account will now give you a massive mail quota of 25Gb (up from 10Gb).
Your email address will continue to be firstname.lastname@example.org
To sign in to yoru account, please enter Student ID Number@alumni.hud.ac.uk on the login page.
Your password will stay the same and you should not lose access to your old emails.
From Monday 5th August onwards access to your email account will be via http://outlook.com/alumni.hud.ac.uk
You can find more information about the change over here: http://www.hud.ac.uk/students/it/office365/
Do I need to do anything?
From Monday 5th August onwards you need to access your alumni email account via http://outlook.com/alumni.hud.ac.uk
However, if you don't plan to check your alumni email account regularly, we recommend that you set up your account to automatically forward your emails to the account you use regularly.
I graduated before 2010 – can I still get email for life?
If you graduated before 2010, we should be able to set up an account for you retrospectively if you like. If so, please email to email@example.com and include your full name, date of birth, course you studied, year of graduation and a contact phone number. We'll then pursue it for you.
