Set up your IT account

Activating your IT account before you arrive means that you can start receiving important University emails, complete the first step of University registration online, and get access to Surrey's IT services once you are here.

You can activate your IT account as soon as you have received your welcome email confirming your place at Surrey. To do this, you’ll just need to enter your University number (found in your welcome email from the University) and your date of birth. You’ll then be given a username and be asked to set a password.

Photo upload

As part of the online registration process you will be asked to upload a photo of yourself, which will be used for your campus card. Your campus card will be pre-printed and available for you to collect when you register in person during Welcome Week.

Only those students who have completed online registration and uploaded a photo by 15 September will have their campus card pre-printed. Anyone registering online after 15 September (or if your uploaded photo is not suitable), will have to have their photo taken as part of the registration process during Welcome Week. As there may be long queues, we encourage you to complete online registration and upload your photo by 15 September!

Eligibility to study

We are required to make sure all our students are eligible to study in the UK. We’re asking for UK and EU nationals to upload documents as part of online registration, which will be stored securely on your student record.

To show your right to study, you will be required to upload one of the following documents:

  • Passport of an EU country – specifically the photo page where nationality is shown. Please upload a clear copy, with none of the important information obscured
  • EU/EEA national identity card
  • Birth certificate and additional documentation (if you are British but do not hold a passport)
  • Visa/immigration documentation – for example, if you hold Indefinite Leave to Remain, please upload your BRP card or stamp/sticker in your passport

Make sure you upload the document you will be able to bring with you in Welcome Week as we will need to verify this – it must be valid and ideally shouldn’t expire before the start of your course.

If you’re not able to upload a document, we’ll need to take a scan in Welcome Week, which may delay the completion of your registration.

Confirmation of pre-registration

On completion of online registration you’ll receive your ‘Confirmation of pre-registration’, which you can either print or save to your phone. Please bring this along to your registration session during Welcome Week.

IT account

Your IT account will also be enabled on completion of Online Registration so you can access the University of Surrey’s IT Services. Please be aware it can take between 24–48 hours after completion on online registration before all IT services are available.

These include:

  • Surrey365 email
  • PCs and computer labs
  • Wireless network and ResNet
  • Online library resources
  • Print, photocopying and scanning

If you need support or have any queries, or you can find out more at IT at Surrey. You can also find us on Facebook and Twitter.

If you are living in University accommodation, you may also want to find out more about ResNet, the internet in your room.
