7. When you leave
Once your University card has expired any accounts with OUCS will be deactivated. This means that you will not be able access your email account. However, if you have set up email forwarding before your card expires, this will generally work for a further two months. For students who leave in the summer, your mailbox will be deleted three months’ later. Those returning in the autumn are advised to double-check that OUCS Registration knows that you are returning, and have made preparations to preserve your mailbox data. Please see Finishing at Oxford for more details.
The University also provides an Alumni email address for ex-students. For more information see: Alumni email forwarding service.
