In the past, graduating students had to apply for the Graduate E-mail Account by filling in an electronic application form on the web. With the new arrangement, the Graduate E-mail Account will be automatically created for a graduate when the status of his record maintained by the Registry is changed to "graduated".
An e-mail will be sent to inform our new graduates when their free Graduate E-mail Accounts are created. The graduate email accounts are maintained on the "graduate.hku.hk" server. The account name and password will be the same as those on the HKUSUA server. For example, if a student's HKUSUA account name is 'h9876543' and password is 'testtest', then the account name and password for his new graduate account will also be 'h9876543' and 'testtest' respectively. The only difference is that the server hosting his email account will be "graduate.hku.hk" instead of "hkusua.hku.hk". In the example just cited, the Graduate E-mail address would be 'firstname.lastname@example.org'. Graduates can now change their account names at the web page http://www.hku.hk/convocat/alumni_email.htm.
The above arrangement of automatic account creation does not apply to University alumni who have graduated before July 2000. Previous graduates must apply for the free e-mail account by filling out an electronic form at the webpage http://www.hku.hk/convocat/alumni_email.htm.
