Student Email

Get to know exactly how your student email works.

Why your student email is important

All email communication from us will be sent to your @live.blackburn.ac.uk email address. Make sure you have access to your account on your phone or set the emails to forward to your personal email address.

How to access your student email

  • To access your email, simply go to www.blackburn.ac.uk and click on Staff & Students and then Student Email.
  • Your email address is your student number 12345678 followed by @live.blackburn.ac.uk. If you aren’t sure what your ID number is, it is printed on your Student ID card.
  • Your password is your first initial as a capital letter, then the initial of you surname in lowercase, followed by your date of birth in 8 digits 01092000. So if your name is Joe Bloggs and your date of birth is 1st September 2000 your password would be Jb01092000.
