Check Your Email - Use it or Lose it
An Email address (e.g.
email@example.com) is included
with all computer accounts on the School’s computer. This email address
will be for general and course specific announcements and all users
should check their email frequently, ideally at least once a week.
It is possible to arrange email forwarding for those people who would
rather receive their email on a different system. When forwarding is
used it is the account owners responsibility to ensure that the
forwarding records are correct.
A computer account may be considered abandoned and consequently disabled for the following reasons:
To avoid missing important announcements or risk having
their account disabled users are recommended to check their email
frequently or set and keep current forwarding.
- Email has been unread for several weeks and forwarding is not in use.
- Forwarding is in use but the forwarded to address is no longer valid.
Recently the College has started issuing all students with an account
and email address (e.g.
firstname.lastname@example.org) on the
Central Computer Service (CCS) systems.
The College has also started to use this CCS email address to
contact students. To avoid missing important announcements students
should either frequently check for email on their CCS account or set
forwarding. Your CCS email account can be accessed remotely via a web browser
The College is also using email to communicate with staff and
circulate general or specific announcements.
Email for Crystallography staff accounts is automatically forwarded from
the CCS servers to the Crystallography servers
In addition to email the CCS account also provides access to other services including:
The CCS account is automatically deleted after a student is recorded as
no longer registered for a course. For most students accounts this
usually on or after 1 November in the new academic year
- The College wireless Network
- Electronic access to the Library
