Welcome to CU Scarborough

Welcome to CU Scarborough

First, congratulations on your CU offer. Going into higher education is an exciting life choice. You’ll be joining a tight-knit community and experiencing a truly unique approach to study.

From here on out we’ll be in touch before those important first days. To help those new student nerves, we’ve got a simple guide to what happens next.

Before you start


Before you start, we will send you an enrolment link by email. Part of your enrolment should include uploading a photo for your Student ID card.


CU have an online induction with an introduction to CU, hints and tips about student life and access to your learning materials.

Online learning is new for many students, so induction includes IT help to get started:

  • How to set up your Microsoft Office 365 account.
  • How to use Aula (Virtual learning environment).
  • How to use Wayfinder (Online hub for navigating our services).

It can be overwhelming starting in higher education, so you can come back to your induction at any time.

Student ID card

Your ID card gives access to CU facilities and accommodation. It also allows use of printers, registers your attendance and grants student discounts.

Your card gets posted to you after you upload a photo for enrolment. Otherwise, you’ll need to book to collect your card in person and bring accepted proof of identity and nationality.
