FAQs

When will my University IT account close?

If you are graduating in summer 2018, your University computer account will be suspended on 31 August. 

Once your account is suspended, you will lose access to your files saved on the University Filestore and your University email account. You will also no longer be able to log on to campus computers or use the photocopiers and printers.  

When will my UCard expire?

If you're graduating in summer 2018, your UCard will have now expired.

If you are an undergraduate student with an expired UCard and would like to use the library facilities prior to your graduation, you can email library@sheffield.ac.uk. Please note that you will not be able to borrow resources.

Can I keep my @sheffield.ac.uk email address?

No. After 31 August, you will no longer be able to access your University computer account or emails. So it's important that you transfer any emails you wish to keep to your personal email account.

Don't use your University email address when registering for websites you will continue to use after you have graduated. Do not give your University email address to potential employers or when applying for jobs online as they will not be able to contact you after you've graduated.

What if I am continuing my studies as a University of Sheffield Postgraduate?

If you are continuing your postgraduate studies at The University of Sheffield, you will be given a new account when you attend your registration event, but you will keep your email address, emails, Filestore and Google account.
