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

Next, 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'll also find information there about your ID check and uploading a photo for your student card.

Once you have completed all of your enrolment requirements your LJMU student card will be printed and posted to your home or term time address. 

Royal Mail Industrial Action:

Royal Mail workers are planning to take strike action on 26 and 31 August, and again on 8 and 9 September 2022. This may lead to delays in you receiving your student ID card, so please allow at least 7 working days from completing your registration for your card to be delivered. 

If you live outside of the UK, you can find details of how to get your ID card here.

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 phone on 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 by clicking here.
