What you need to know
Once you are a registered student of the University a whole world of resources and support opens up to you.
Once you have paid for your course, you will get an initial email, and a receipt for payment. Once we have processed your registration, usually a couple of days later, you will receive a further email as confirmation of your enrolment. This confirmation email will contain your student ID number. Using this number, you can visit the 'Your Computing Account' page to generate a username and password which allows you to access the University’s computer network. Once registered, this will give you access to a student email account. You can also use your Student ID number to get access to Liverpool Life. This allows you to view and update your student details. With your login details you can also browse the University Library’s online catalogue of print and e-resources, and apply for a student ID card. Please read section 3 of the CE Student Handbook (link below) for more details about registering.
The Student ID card gives you access to University Buildings, including our Libraries. This gives access the online catalogue, on-line books and journals and also borrow books from the library. You can book study space in the library, book a pc to use, or find help with study skills.
The Student ID card is accepted at a number of museums, galleries and local shops to give discounted (and sometimes free) admission, - for example free admission to exhibitions at the Tate Liverpool, discounted entry to Ness Gardens, and many others- read more here - https://news.liverpool.ac.uk/2021/10/12/top-discounts-for-liverpool-students-2/
Your student card can be used as payment card for the Campus cafes if you register with the Loyalty Plus scheme https://www.liverpool.ac.uk/food-and-drink/loyalty-plus/
You need to use Liverpool Life to upload a photograph to request a student card. An email will be sent to you when you register for a course with details of how to do this.
The University has now introduced digital student ID cards and will no longer issue physical cards, in line with the sustainability agenda. To access your digital student card, please go to the app store on your phone and download the My Liverpool app.
To login to the app, you will need to use your MWS username and password.
Registering for a University IT account also gives you a student email account, and access to a number of University systems , along with access to Microsoft Office software.
We really hope you enjoy these additional benefits of being an OL student at the University of Liverpool.
Continuing Education wants to know what you think about our courses. We will ask you for feedback on each course but you can also email us at anytime with your feedback, comments and suggestions.
