Welcometo Loughborough

Before you arrive

Online registration

Online registration is a simple way of providing the University with the information that we need to register you and produce your student ID card. Much of the information that we require will already have been provided to us via your application – however, we do need you to check this to ensure that it is correct. We also need to collect additional information.

By registering with Loughborough University, you are also confirming that you have read and are agreeing to the Terms and Conditions of Study. These can be found at http://www.lboro.ac.uk/study/apply/supporting/terms-conditions/  

When to register

If you are due to commence your studies at Loughborough, then you will be invited to register approximately six weeks prior to your arrival at the University.

Please note:  You will be unable to complete the online registration process until you receive an email inviting you to register. If you try before then, you will get an error saying that your credentials have not been recognised.

To successfully register online at Loughborough University you will need to follow the steps outlined below.
