Important information about IT accounts for those leaving or graduating University.
To make sure you don't lose important files when leaving Manchester Met, we've put together some useful guidelines for you to read well in advance of your last day with us.
When you leave Manchester Metropolitan University, your network and email accounts will be closed immediately, and deleted three months later. This ensures the most efficient and secure use of our resources.
Network and email accounts will be closed immediately following the end of your contract. Please discuss with your manager suitable wording for an out-of-office message.
Although you will not be able to access your email account after your contract end date, any out-of-office messages will remain active for a further three months.
If you need any help, please contact the IT Helpline on 0161 247 4646.
In addition, your licence to use Office 365 will expire once you have left the University. If you would like to use the Office suite of applications once you have left University, you may purchase the package at a discounted rate via OnTheHub.
