Five things to do before you start university

What Next?

Five things that you can do before you arrive at university to make your life easier once you get here.

01. Online Welcome

Create an account and complete our online welcome before you arrive.

02. Get photo fresh

Be sure to upload a colour, passport-style photo for your student ID ‘Campus Card’, this will save you time when you arrive, and make sure you're looking your best!

03. Bring ID

Make sure you have the right documents for your ID check during welcome week. It is really important that you present an original valid passport, your birth or adoption certificate, or EU identity card to complete your ID Check – it may take a little while if you have to order a new one and we cannot accept a driving licence in place of these, so it’s best to get this sorted soon.

04. Disabilty Advice

If you have a long term health condition, such as diabetes, epilepsy, or a mental health condition such as anxiety or depression; a specific learning difficulty, such as dyslexia; or a physical disability, such a hearing or visual impairment and haven’t told us about this already get in touch with our Disability Advice team. Supporting our students is really important to us. The earlier you make contact the better so we can try to get tailored support ready for when you arrive.

05. Make a packing list

If you’re moving in to accommodation work out what you need to bring with you (and what you don’t), every student halls has enough frying pans to feed an army! Also join our fresher’s groups to start to make friends before you arrive.
