When does my account expire?
Closing your IT account - Student
Your university IT account usually expires approximately 90 days after the completion of your programme of study as recorded in the Student Information System. This does NOT mean 90 days after graduation. You must ensure you take copies of any important work and emails prior to your completion date.
A notification regarding your account expiry date is sent to your LJMU email account approximately 1 month before the completion of your programme of study. However, this may not happen if your completion date is amended (e.g. backdated) on the Student Information System. It would therefore be advisable to take regular copies of any work/emails well in advance of your completion date.
Post Graduate Student
For Post Graduate students who submit their work and have already gone past their official programme completion date, the account may expire with immediate effect. Please ensure you take copies of any important work and emails prior to the submission of your work.
Withdraw or Discontinue?
For students who withdraw or discontinue from their course, the account may expire with immediate effect. Please ensure you take copies of any important work and emails prior to submitting your notification of withdrawal.
