Before you arrive

What you need to do now

We are looking forward to welcoming you to LJMU.

Before you arrive there’s a few things you must do to become an LJMU student.

Step 1 - Complete your online registration

Before starting the academic year, all students must complete the online registration form in My LJMU. You will receive an email with details about how to do this, including your 6-7 digit student ID number, once your offer is confirmed. Until you register you can’t begin your studies at LJMU.

To complete your registration:

We'll post your Student ID card and lanyard to your registered home address.

Please note: 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.

Are you an international student?

As well as completing the registration steps above you must also:

Your International student ID card can be collected at the International Welcome Event on 15 and 16 September. Alternatively, you can collect your student card from Exchange Station from 19 September.

No card, no access

It's compulsory to bring your ID on to campus, you'll need it to access all of our buildings and lecture theatres and to use our facilities, so make sure to keep it on you at all times. You won't be granted access without it.

Step 2 - Download My LJMU app and view your timetable

Induction week timetables will become available from the middle of August. Timetables will be available from week commencing 19 September via My LJMU. You can also download the My LJMU app on to your phone via the Apple App Store or Google Play.

Most students will have access to personalised timetables. If you have any queries about your timetable, or you are having difficulties signing into My Timetable you can access our Frequently Asked Questions.

Step 3 - Log on to Canvas

Canvas is our virtual learning environment, also available via the My LJMU App where you’ll start to see information from your Programme and Module leaders about your course.

Further support with logging on

If you are having any difficulty with your username, logging into My LJMU or My Services, or any other part of student registration, and follow our step by step guidance or contact or 0151 231 3289.
