Kentforlife email will close in July

We are sorry to announce that the Kentforlife email service will close on 31 July 2019. Most current staff or students won’t be affected as the Kentforlife service is for alumni and former staff.

Why is it closing?

We’ve offered the Kentforlife email service to Kent leavers for over 10 years. During that time usage has declined significantly. We’ve taken the difficult decision to close this service because it’s blocking us from providing a range of collaborative digital services to current students and staff.

Informing users

We’ve developed a University-wide communications plan, in conjunction with the Alumni Office and others, to ensure staff, students and alumni know how to prepare for this change.

If you currently use your Kentforlife email, please read this checklist

Staff or students who leave Kent are being informed that although they can use the Kentforlife service, this will only be until 31 July when it will close.

If alumni access other services with their Kent IT Account, such as MyFolio, this will continue to work.
