Enrolment and registration

If you are a new student you will need to activate your LJMU computer account before you can complete your online registration. To do this you will need your six or seven digit student ID number - you will find this on your registration email.

  • Go to My LJMU and click on the My Account tile.
  • Select Activate My Account and follow the instructions to set up your LJMU username and password.
  • Once you have activated your LJMU account you should go to My LJMU and complete your on-line registration.

You will also find information there about your ID checks and uploading a photo for your student card.

Student ID Cards

New students who complete registration prior to 6 September 2023 will receive their ID card, LJMU lanyard and a Campus map by post to their permanent home address.

Students who complete registration from 7 September onwards, and who have their induction the week commencing Monday 18 September onwards, can collect their cards at pop-up card collection hubs on the 15, 16 and 17 September between 10:00am and 4:00pm at the Student Life Building or the Tithebarn Street Building reception desk.

After that, cards can be collected between 18 to 29 September (9:00am to 7:00pm, Monday to Friday only) at the Student Life Building or the reception desks at Tithebarn Street Building, Redmonds Building or James Parsons Building.

Please note:
ID cards will not be posted between 7 September and 1 October.

If you live outside of the UK, you can find details of how to get your ID card on the international enrolment webpage.

If you are having any difficulty with your username or logging into My LJMU or My Services please contact us at Student Registration or by calling 0151 231 3289.

Logging in to LJMU systems

There are a couple of different ways to log in to LJMU systems.

If you are logging into your LJMU email (outlook) then use your 8-letter username, for example CMPJBLOGG (see below) and password.

Logging in

However, if you are logging into My LJMU or Canvas you will be prompted to use the 8-letter username with the @ljmu.ac.uk suffix as your user ID, so for example CMPJBLOGG@ljmu.ac.uk with your usual password.

Logging in

There are instructions on the @ljmu.ac.uk log in screens that clarify which user ID to use.

If you are logged on to a university PC on campus then you can access these applications using the desktop icons.

If you need to re-set your password you can do this via My Account.

If you need any further assistance, please email studentregistration@ljmu.ac.uk.

Online module selection

Selecting your modules won't take very long and you can complete OMS from any computer with an internet connection.

Before you make your final selection we recommend that you talk to your programme leader or module tutors, if you haven't already done so, to find out what option modules are appropriate to your specific programme or route of study. You should also check that the modules meet the qualifying criteria for any professional accreditations associated with your course.

If you have any difficulties making your option module choices please complete a student enquiry form.
