For undergraduate students there are two stages of enrolment that need to be completed before you are officially a Roehampton student and are able to collect your Student I.D. The first is completed online before you arrive in September, and then once you are on campus you will need to complete the second stage and confirm your identity during Welcome Week. Please follow the below steps, and make sure you complete stage 1 before you arrive in September.

As a postgraduate student, you will complete your enrolment online. Please follow the steps below.

Online enrolment before you arrive

Completing your online enrolment is the first step towards becoming a Roehampton student. It's very easy and won't take more than a couple minutes. You cannot start your course if you do not enrol.

  • Once your place has been confirmed, you will receive an email from our Registry Enrolment Team with your Roehampton username and password.
  • You can expect to receive your email with log-in details from Thursday 22nd August.
  • You will need to have your username and password ready before starting your enrolment.

Our Registry Team will email you from: enrolment@roehampton.ac.uk. Please save our email address as a preferred contact to prevent it from going into your junk folder.

Please complete the online enrolment here before you arrive.

Make sure you follow all of the steps.

  • Accept the student contract
  • Complete your photo upload
  • Check your personal details. Confirm your home address, term time address (if known) and emergency contact details
  • Complete your finance registration and pay your fees (full-time students only)
  • If you are going to study part-time you cannot complete your finance registration prior to arrival. You will have the opportunity to do this once you select your modules during Welcome Week.

When you have completed the above steps you will see four green ticks. Your status on Student Portal will remain 'pending' until you have attended your programme briefing, and ID check during Welcome Week, when you will become a fully registered student.

Completing your enrolment and ID check

There are three important steps you need to complete to finalise the enrolment process, part-time students will need to complete step 4 as well.

1. Attend a compulsory Programme Briefing session.

During your briefing you will:

  • Meet some of your lectures and your peers
  • Have elements of your programme and timetable explained and be able to ask any questions
  • Select modules online, if relevant for your programme

Remember to check the Welcome Week timetable on your department page to see when and where your programme briefing takes place.

2. Attend enrolment completion and ID check
Here's a handy checklist of everything you need to bring along.

  • Your email from us detailing your username/password and student ID number.
  • Confirmation of online finance registration email (full-time students only). You do not need to print this out, however it is handy to have access to this on your phone should there be a query. 
  • Proof of ID - you must bring this to the identity check which is part of your enrolment:
  • Home/EU students may bring either (1) a passport, EU identity card, or (2) a full or provisional photo card UK Driving Licence, plus a bank card or (3) Birth Certificate plus bank card
  • International students must bring their current passport and visas.
  • Tier 4 students are required to bring originals of the qualifications used to obtain their offer as well as their passport and visas.

Remember to check the Welcome Week Timetable on your department page to see when and where you need to go. Welcome Week runs from Monday 16 to Friday 20 September.

3. Student ID card collection following enrolment
Your Roehampton student ID card will act as your:

  • Your student ID. This is your official student ID and therefore will include your name, photograph, student ID number and your programme expiry date. You need to carry your ID card with you at all times while on campus
  • Access card to buildings around campus. Some buildings require you swipe your ID card to get into the building – you just need to touch your card on the reader on the door
  • Your library card. You'll need to use your ID card to access the library, borrow books and other learning materials.
  • Your attendance monitor. For each lecture you will need to register your attendance by tapping your card on the black boxes located outside the entrance to each lecture theatre/room. You should have uploaded your photo before you arrived during online enrolment. If so, your student ID card will be ready for you to collect from Southlands once you complete your enrolment.Your Roehampton student ID will not act as an NUS card.

4. Fee payment - Part-time students only
Part time students must have selected their modules before they can complete their fee registration and pay their tuition fees.
