Email for Life

The College offers every member of College an Email for Life address on the Pembroke email system. Your Email for Life address is an alias which forwards any incoming email to your real email address. It is not an email account, so there is no user name or password.

The structure of each address follows a standard format, making it easy for you to contact your friends and contemporaries but your real email address is kept private and also avoids you having to notify all your friends if you change jobs or internet service provider. Please be aware though, that if someone sends you a message using your Email for Life address and you reply to it, your email programme will insert your real address into the email you send. Please also note that this service is intended for private, rather than business use.

The format is:

PreferredFirstname.Lastname.YearOfMatriculation@pem.cam.ac.uk

e.g. Bill.Smith.1968@pem.cam.ac.uk.

When forming PreferredFirstname and Lastname, spaces are turned into a stop/period character (.) while hyphens (-) remain and apostrophes (‘) are removed.

You can activate it at any time by telling us your real email address. We will add the information to the College’s database and any subsequent email will be forwarded to your real email address.

If you wish to add your email address to your College record and participate in Email for Life, please contact the Development Office for more information by emailing emailforlife@pem.cam.ac.uk or calling +44 (0)1223 339079.
