You have worked hard, spent endless days and nights in the library, finished your exams, and are moving on. Now what?

What many students may not realise is that you are part of the LSE alumni community – a lifelong global network of over 133,000 contactable members all over the world. As part of this network, LSE alumni can access a range of benefits and services, as well as join groups and events.

How do graduating students successfully transition to alumni?

Here are some top tips from LSE Alumni Relations.

What to do now:

After you graduate:

Don’t forget:

  • LSE student email accounts and H: spaces expire on 31 December of the year you graduate. Once this occurs, your student accounts and email addresses will no longer be accessible, so it is very important that emails or documents are saved elsewhere. For all queries about your student account, contact IT Services.
  • Your student cards should be valid until 22 October 2016. Alumni cards are library cards that need to be collected in person from the Library Membership desk. You can apply online here. Please bring a photo ID or your old library card with you.
  • You need to open an LSE for You Public Accounts to access Digitary (for your transcript) and CareerHub (for the LSE Careers service). These accounts are administrated by LSE Student Services. Please email with a copy of your photo ID in order to get access.
