We can't wait for you to join our University of Essex family. But, to become an official student, you'll need to register first.
You can begin your registration online before you arrive.
Even though you’ve started your registration process before you arrive on campus, every new student must also attend registration in person on campus. It’s how we know you’ve arrived and are ready to start your course - so don’t miss it! Check the Registration schedule for your campus for details of where and when to register in person.
When you register, you become an official member of our Community and get full access to our facilities and services. You’ll need to register at the right time for your course, so make sure you keep checking your emails for further information from your department.
You will need to bring some photo identification (ID) with you when you register, so we can verify that you are definitely you. Check out our guidance on accepted forms of ID at registration below.
If you need any further help and advice, please contact or visit the Student Services Hub who will be happy to assist you.
