Undergraduate registration

Please read the following information about the registration process. There is more information on the University website (www.ox.ac.uk/students/new).

University registration

The University requires all students to register online at the start of each academic year. Registration opens on 1 September 2016 and closes on 14 October 2016. If possible, please register online before you arrive in Oxford. If you are not able to register in advance of arriving in Oxford, you will be able to do so once you are here. The registration process is a chance for you to check that the University holds the correct personal information about you and to make any amendments. You will register using an online system called Student Self Service. A detailed guide to using Student Self Service is on the University website (www.ox.ac.uk/students/registration).

University card

In order to log into Student Self Service, you will need an Oxford Single Sign On (SSO) account. You will receive your SSO account details once you have completed and returned the University card form to the College and it has been processed. As well as generating your username and password, your University card will also give you access to college and department buildings.

College registration

Once you have arrived in Oxford, you will need to come to the Mary Somerville Room in House to complete the registration process. Please bring your passport with you. We will be open for new student registration on Tuesday 4th October from 09.30 until 14.00. If you have a visa, please bring your passport and Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) so we can take scanned copies. Please note that we cannot register you until you have collected your BRP.
