    To students at UCL: I got an offer for studying at UCL and I'm making a Portico account. Problem is that I'm transgender and for personal reasons I currently have to use my birth name and email address containing my birth name. I know I can change my known as name later on by contacting the uni, but is that also possible to do regarding my email address considering my circumstances? Do you think they'll be understanding about that and will be able to change it? I wouldn't be able to bare using my birth name email address for all my years of uni. Thanks in advance!!

    You'll get given a uni email address. Just make sure they are aware of what name you want to use before they issue that. You may want to consider getting your name changed legally as the uni may still need your legal name.

    I'll let them know as soon as I'm 18 and officially in, so after my exams. I can't change my name legally as of yet because I'm from a country that's not as accepting as the UK, but I read that international residents can also use deadpoll to state they go by another name so I'll try that.

    When do they issue the uni email addresses though?
