    Usually, yes, but each uni has its own process so check where you are (your department's Admin Office should be able to advise).

    My undergrad uni issued non-expiring email addresses to my year as a trial. I believe this scheme was later scrapped and current undergrads have their accounts closed a few weeks after the graduation ceremony.

    My Masters uni gave us three months after graduation to clear it down and pass contacts/info to an alternative. We had reminder emails with the closure date several times during the three months, so it wasn't just shut down cold.

    Check with the Alumni or with the University's IT Department, it will be on their FAQs.

    My Uni gives us life-long emails, but they have "alumni" in rather than "student". Maybe they'll do that?
