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.
Once you’ve received an email from the Registration team, you'll be able to set up your Essex email and IT account. This usually happens shortly after your application has been processed and you have been accepted.
The online registration system is now open. You will need to have set up your Essex email and IT account in order to register (see above).
Even though you’ve started your registration process before you arrive on campus, every new student must also attend registration in person at the Student Services Hub on campus. It’s how we know you’ve arrived and are ready to start your course - so don’t miss it!
When you register, you become an official member of our Community and get full access to our facilities and services.
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.
Once you have completed your registration in full, you will then be permitted to attend teaching events.
If you have missed teaching events, you should speak with your Personal Tutor, or a member of staff in your department, about catching up on missed work, and how they can support you further.
If you need any further help and advice, please contact or visit the Student Services Hub who will be happy to assist you.
