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.
The online registration system is now closed.
You must now obtain approval from your department or school and register in person at your Student Services Hub. You must remember to complete registration before you are permitted to attend teaching.
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!
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.
