Why have I received a message that my Student Account is disabled?

Information Services is a major University administrative department with responsibilities covering library, academic and administrative computing, digital communications, media-technology services and reprographic services.

When attempting login to the student network and you are notified that your student account has become disabled, it is due to various internal situations such as:

  • Unpaid Fees
  • Leaver Status

Unpaid Fees

Tuition fees, accommodation fees and examination resit fees must be paid by the due date, otherwise you risk having access to various IT and Library services disabled.

Students with unpaid tuition fees will be notified by email that their access to University IT and Library services is at risk.

As per normal University practice, this email will be sent to the registered University email account - therefore, students are reminded that this account should be accessed regularly.

Students with unpaid accommodation fees will be notified by email, via the email address registered on the Residential Services e-application system.

Students with unpaid examination resit fees should refer to their green Communication of Results form sent from their Course Director.

Core University IT systems such as student computer workstations and the Portal will also issue reminder prompts.

Students should resolve outstanding fee issues during this notification period, otherwise their account will be disabled.

Accounts that have been disabled can be promptly re-activated, once the outstanding fees issue has been resolved.
