ProTip: If you're in school and you're given an email address (here, .edu domain emails are common), don't use it for things which will require a long-term access
Or for anything your school disagrees with or want to keep from the prying eyes of the administration and IT. Policies/Laws mean little if the capability exists
Once you graduate, or leave through another means, you may loss access to your email and any other account registered with it, if you can't change it later
I had to do this over the last couple of years due to using a .eu email address since about 2014 and subsequently half my country's population voting to exit the European Union; though in the end I have been able to keep my .eu domain (by leasing it to a company in Ireland) I had to move all the more critical stuff to my .uk email addresses just in case this agreement is not sustainable long term..
