Keep your contact details up to date, choose your communication preferences and access digital resources including JSTOR and HEAR.
About the Alumni Portal
This online facility enables all former students to keep contact details, employment information and communications preferences up to date, as well as providing access to a variety of digital resources including JSTOR, a library of academic journals.
Keeping contact information up to date allows the University to keep you informed about events, people, and a variety of opportunities to work with current students and staff on projects and initiatives that match your interests and passions beyond graduation. By sharing employment information, you allow the University to better understand your professional expertise and interests and, more broadly, the composition of our wider university community.
This replaces the previous version of the portal accessed via MyEd but is still securely accessed using your unique university ID and password.
You can login to the Alumni Portal using Your University Login:
University of Edinburgh graduates from 2012 onwards can view and send their HEAR electronically via the Alumni Portal. Your recipient will receive an email containing a secure link they can use to download your transcript.
JSTOR is a rich archive of scholarly journals, covering a wide range of disciplines.
The University of Edinburgh has license agreements for selected archival content and has made this available to alumni.
How to access
You can access the online journals through the Alumni Portal using Your University Login:
The first screen that you will see is the one pictured. This is the secure login page for the University. Enter your username and continue. Then enter your password and you will be taken to the Alumni Portal.
Once you are logged in, you will be presented with a personalised secure website showing the contact information that the University currently holds that you can update yourself.
If you don't already have login details or if you graduated before 2023 then you will need to set up a new account. This is a straightforward process that we strongly encourage as it will ensure that we are able to keep you informed about new benefits and services that you are entitled to.
Please contact IS Helpline with the following information, and we will reply with Your University Login.

- Year of completion and/or matriculation number
If you have any problems - either with your existing student login details, or with your new login information - then please visit the IS support site for further information and troubleshooting.
We are committed to protecting your privacy and keeping you informed of how your information is used. You can read our full Privacy notice here:
