Graduating students email account closure, 2017

Posted in: Digital Data & Technology Group

Account closure arrangements for graduating students

Unless otherwise notified, students leaving in summer 2017 will be allowed access to their computer accounts until Thursday, 31 August 2017.

Students will receive an email when their record in the student database is removed, stating exactly when their account will be closed (which will be at least 30 days from the date of the email).

Leavers should ensure that they have taken copies of any documents, emails, address books or other data they may require before their account is closed, as recovery may not be possible afterwards.

Leavers should also ensure that they have registered an alternate email address with Facebook, and any other web sites they may have signed up to with their University email address, before their account is closed.

Alumni email account

All final year students are entitled to a BathMail account ( email address). Powered by Google, this account makes the perfect post-Bath email address. You will receive your BathMail account in June 2017. Please note no emails from your University account and no information will be transferred.  You can find out more about the BathMail service and you can contact the Alumni Relations Team at

Students starting another course

Students who are completing their current course of study this summer but who will be starting another course at the University of Bath in the autumn (including students completing a two-year Foundation Degree and going on to do the top-up year) need to take action if they wish their account to remain open throughout this period. Please email giving details of the course you will be starting. Depending on the status of your application we may need to seek confirmation from the Academic Registry.

Please note that in certain circumstances the presence in the database of an application for a new course may cause the account to be locked (or put into a state in which only Registration-On-Line can be accessed) as soon as the record for the previous course is removed. If this happens to you just email as described above, but please also include an alternative means by which we can contact you (should we need to) before the account is reopened.
