During your first few days on campus you'll complete the final steps to becoming an LSBU student and receive your ID card

Visit the maps and travel page for details on getting to the Southwark and Havering campuses and maps of the area. Once on campus look out for LSBU staff dressed in orange t-shirts. They will be happy to help you with any queries.

Step 1

Face-to-face enrolment

During your enrolment appointment your qualifications, identity and arrangements for paying fees will be checked. See our face-to-face enrolment page for details on what you'll need to bring. Once enrolment is complete you will receive your LSBU ID card. You must attend your enrolment appointment in person on the Southwark campus.

Step 2

Course induction

To help you get your studies off to a great start, join your fellow students at your course induction. See your course induction timetable. During your induction you'll be able to speak to your lecturers and learn more about your academic activities. If you are unable to attend you should visit your School's Student Administration Office who will put you in contact with your course director.

Step 3

Paying for University accommodation

If you have secured a room at one of the University's residences you will need to pay the fees before or upon arrival at your accommodation.
