Policy for provision and use of OWA

An email account for life is available to all registered students, and Alumni, of the University of Aberdeen. Once opened, the account will remain so for life unless the user breaches;

Breaches of these conditions will be dealt with under the appropriate University disciplinary procedures and may, where it is alleged that an offence has occurred under any current UK or Scots law, be reported to the Police. When appropriate, the use of IT facilities may be suspended immediately, pending investigation by an authorised officer of the University.

Please note: IT Services does not provide support for OWA once you have graduated from the University of Aberdeen.
