    ask them now. im not sure how ur university is run, but im sure there is a office that safely files the letters (without you seeing them).

    i would say get to know them better and keep in contact with them. let them know your plans and that in the future, you may like a letter from them. you could change a lot in the next two years, so i wouldn't have them written just yet. if you stay in contact with them, i am sure you will know if they are leaving. if they do leave, they can still write you a letter.
