Enrolment and Induction

Online Enrolment opens on 29 August. Ensure you complete this and have uploaded a photograph by 6 September so your Student ID Card is ready for you when you arrive on campus.

Your Student ID Card will be your key to accessing all areas so make sure to have it with you at all times!

Your course induction will take place between 18 and 22 September and is your opportunity to meet your lecturers and find out more about what you’ll be learning. Your induction schedule has been sent out via email as part of your joining instructions.

Life in the Library

When you enrol at Ulster University, you're automatically signed up to the Library Service. You simply need your Student ID Card to borrow books and your email address and password to access electronic resources.

Each library has an array of books and learning resources, study spaces, printing and photocopying facilities – you’ll find all you need to know to get started on our Library pages.
