University of Bath

Registering with the University

Register online so you can use University facilities, get into buildings around campus and start your studies.

Why you must register

You must register with the University so that you can:

  • confirm your details and add any more that we need
  • agree to the rules and regulations of the University
  • arrange to pay your fees
  • collect your library card when you arrive

Returning students

You must register at the start of every year that you are a student at the University. We will email you in September to ask you to do this.

When you can register

Before you can register you must have:

  • firmly accepted your offer of a place
  • met the conditions of entry for your course
  • uploaded a copy of your visa, if you are an international student

If you have completed these requirements, we will send you an email in September inviting you to register.

If you have completed these requirements but haven't received the email, check Application Tracker for any special conditions you need to meet.

When you have received the email, you will be able to log in to register.

You will not be able to register until you have received the email.

Completing registration when you get here

If your student loan has not arrived and you do not plan on paying your fees another way, you will not be able to register online. Instead, you will need to register when you arrive at the University.

During Induction Week, go to the Registration Helpdesk in the Library to register with a member of the Student Records & Examinations Office.

You must take your approval letter from Student Finance England to prove that your student loan has been approved.

Collecting your library card

If you did not collect your library card when moving into your student accommodation, you will be able to get it from the Library. This is your proof of identity on campus.

If you need help registering

If you need help while registering online, use the Contact Support link on the registration website.

If you have a question about your fees or your sponsor, you may not be able to register online before coming to the University. When you arrive on campus, visit the Student Finance Office to ask for advice.

You can also get help at the Registration Helpdesk in the Library during Induction Week.
