Kentforlife: Kent email when you leave
A permanent Kentforlife email account is available to graduating students and ex-staff. If you leave Kent without graduating, your student email account is closed. If you start another course, you get a new Kent username/password and a new email account.
Undergraduates and taught postgraduates
When you graduate, you can keep your Student email account but please note:
- your email address changes to firstname.lastname@example.org
- your old address will still work for incoming mail.
Research postgraduates and ex-staff
When you leave, your email account is closed and you get a 'kentforlife' account on the same platform as the Student email service.
Your email address is your Kent IT Account username appended with @kentforlife.net:
