When you arrive

Welcome to London! Here are our top four things you should do once you've arrived on campus to help you get set for the coming weeks.


Get to know the campus

Our Wayfinder app will help you find everything you need on campus from buildings, university services and where to get help. It will even help you locate available PCs for study.


Activate your IT account

Your Office 365 account will be automatically created when you complete your enrolment, and details on how to activate it can be found in your online induction. To use your account, go to Microsoft Office 365 or, for more information, log in to the Student Portal.

You need to check your university email regularly for important communications from the university. Please note that university staff will only respond to emails sent from your Office 365 account.


Get your first Student ID card

Your student ID card is very important; it allows you to:

  • access university buildings and accommodation
  • register your attendance at classes
  • access printing and student discounts.

For all enrolment information, including picking up your card, visit our How to enrol information.


Discover Your Students' Union

Your Students' Union (SU) is a charity that exists to make your experience as a student the best it can be. Led by students, for students. Throughout the year the SU organises socials, events, open mic nights, quizzes and much more. The SU also provides volunteering opportunities, an advice centre, employability support, societies and sports.
