    is it just me or is everybody's my.insite login names really random??

    mine is bsu**w (stars are there to hide a few letters, just for security reasons , but still , it's random)

    so are they supposed to be random, or was i temporarily out of my mind during the enrolment process and typed in a totally random login name?

    my gwmail is also this bsu**w@gwmail.warwick.ac.uk.... i'll never remember this!

    the first two letters are your department. So im assuming you're in the business school. The second letter means youre an undergraduate and ive no idea what the others mean sorry

    And no you can't change them.


    People can email you at bsu**w@warwick.ac.uk or it'll be one of the following: firstinital.secondinitial.surnam e@warwick.ac.uk or firstinitial.surname@warwick.ac. uk etc. etc. (you'll have to check which is the case for u) and it'll all deliver to the same inbox.

    lol.. neither... oops?

    my name is Sun-Ho Kim
    Sun-Ho is my forename
    Kim is the last name
    (i don't have middle names...)

    weirdly my email account has turned into: sun.kim@warwick.ac.uk
    which fits neither of ur options....

    (and where did my Ho go? ? (no puns intended))

    bsu**j

    i think the earlier you enrol, the last letter is more towards the beginning of the alphabet?

    v.y.he@warwick.ac.uk why do we have two?

    Not how mine appears to work, since I have a double-barrel first name, so mine is L-J.surname@warwick.ac.uk

    Ok so this is me bein a tad pendantic, but I am really bored right now :rolleyes:

    It's only six letter (even though they do seem kinda random) and you'll probably type them quite a lot to login to your email at least so you'll learn them pretty quickly I'd think. The name@warwick.ac.uk email address will come in a different form depending on how common your name is I think. For example, if you've got a *really* common name them you may end up with a number in it somewhere! They're all roughly the same though - variations on your name/initials with a few dots in!
