Collecting your Biometric Residence Permit (Student Visa holders)

If you nominated the University as the collection point for your BRP, it should be available for collection at the International Registration event at the Loughborough campus.  After the registration event has finished, collection can be made from the Student Enquiries Counter, Rutland Building. 

Dependants

If you are collecting BRPs on behalf of your dependants, you must present their passports.  Your dependants do not need to be present.

Collection from a Post Office

If you are collecting your BRP from a Post Office, you are encouraged to do this prior to attending the International Registration Event to obtain your University ID card.  If you are unsure of the location of your BRP, you should log back into your visa application on the UKVI website to check the details. 
 
If you are issued with your student ID card prior to collecting your BRP, you must present your BRP at the International Registration Event or Student Enquiries Counter before the expiry of your 90 day vignette.  Failure to do so will lead to you being placed on a leave of absence and your Student visa sponsorship being withdrawn.

Visa Extension Applications

If you applied to extend your visa from within the UK, your passport and BRP will be delivered to the address provided in your visa application.  You must present your BRP at the Student Enquiries Counter, Rutland Building (Loughborough campus students), or the Professional Services desk in London (London campus students) within five days of receipt.  Failure to do so will lead to you being placed on a leave of absence and your Student visa sponsorship being withdrawn.

If you receive digital immigration permission instead of a new BRP, your visa will be verified via a 'share code'. When generating a share code you should select 'other' as the reason you need to prove your status.  You should email this and a copy of the UKVI email confirming the course and institution for which your visa was issued to studentenquiries@lboro.ac.uk within five days of receipt.
