As an SFU alumnus, you can still access some campus benefits and services including:
Alumni Email Forwarding
Your SFU email (aka Student email storage accounts) remain active for one year from the end of the last semester in which you were registered for classes. You will receive a notification email from SFU's IT Services department four weeks prior to your account expiring, and a second notice two weeks prior to the expiry date.
When your account expires you will only lose access to SFU Connect - including any of your stored emails. Ensure that you transfer your data well in advance to avoid disappointment. To learn how to migrate your existing SFU Connect email data to an external email account please visit IT SERVICES info page.
However, you can continue to receive emails that are sent to your @sfu.ca email address by registering your account for the Alumni Email Forwarding Service. This is a free message relay service and is intended for those who already have an email account with an external email service provider (e.g. Gmail). It is not an email storage account.

To obtain a valid library card with photo identification, visit or call the Academic Resource Office at the Burnaby Campus (778.782.4356) or the Registrar’s Desk at SFU Harbour Centre (778.782.5000).
Note: Your SFU student card is now your alumni card and should also work as your Library card.
SFU Recreation - Burnaby Campus
Even though you are no longer a student, you can still access SFU Athletics & Recreation membership and day passes. Memberships include access to: the fitness centre, aquatic centre, drop-in sports, squash/racquetball/tennis court bookings.
NOTE: Under the membership and day pass rates table on the Recreation website, SFU alumni are considered under "SFU Community" category. Under this category you, along with your family members, have access to a much better rate than the general public.
An official transcript is a complete record of your academic history at Simon Fraser University up until the day the transcript is produced. It lists classes in progress, courses you have taken, grades received, credentials awarded and other information relating to your undergraduate and graduate academic career at SFU. Course work taken at other institutions that is being credited towards your program at SFU will not appear on your official transcript, but it will list the name of the institution at which transfer credit was taken as well as the total number of transfer credit received.
All official transcripts are printed on security paper with the Simon Fraser University seal and signature of the Registrar. Official transcripts are available to current students, former students and alumni. All outstanding accounts must be cleared before an official transcript is released.
All transcripts are confidential and can only be released by request from a student or alumnus. To ensure security and privacy, SFU does not accept transcript requests by phone.
SFU alumni are now able to use all wireless service on campus using SFUNET, plus wireless services at other schools who participate in Eduroam.
