Alumni email service
Display your Imperial connection with an exclusive email address.
The benefits of your special alumni email address include:
- A free Imperial address ending in @alumni.imperial.ac.uk
- Complete Google mailbox service (including Google Calendar, Drive and Talk)
- Easy to set up and manage
Please note that your online account is changing. Whilst we upgrade your online account to Imperial Plexus, we are unable to issue new alumni email addresses. If you already have an alumni email address, the service will remain unaffected and you can continue to use it normally.
What is the alumni email service?
Imperial alumni are able to create a mailbox with an address on the domain @alumni.imperial.ac.uk.
The mailbox is hosted by Google and works like a regular Gmail account.
I am having trouble setting up my email account, can you help?
Please note that whilst we upgrade your online account, we are unable to issue new alumni email addresses. If you already have an alumni email address, the service will remain unaffected and you can continue to use it normally.
Help! I’ve forgotten my password, how do I reset it?
Our accounts are hosted by google, please follow their instructions here
When I login I’m being sent back to the homepage/login page, can you help?
If you are using Internet Explorer 8 or above, please try Chrome or Firefox - unfortunately our website isn’t compatible with IE8 yet
If this does not work, please double check you are not signed into a personal Gmail account, or try to open our email in an incognito browser. Our email accounts are hosted by Google too and these can clash.
My email address is a bit too long… can I shorten it?
In some instances, where alumni have long first names and long surnames we can shorten the format of the email address to that of the initial of one’s first name followed by their surname and start year. For example, email@example.com. To request this, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why does the alumni mailbox button take me to my personal Gmail account rather than my alumni mailbox?
Your alumni email account is hosted by Google, so you may need to log out of your personal account or use an incognito window before you are able to login to your alumni account.
For technical questions about the service, we recommend taking a look at Gmail's online resources here.
Can I set up email forwarding from my student email account?
Alumni can set up an email forwarding service from their student email account to their alumni email account. This will last until your student account is closed which typically remains active for one year after your graduation. View ICT's pages for more information on forwarding, redirecting and importing for alumni email accounts.
