Returning students

Information for current students returning to continue their studies


To continue your studies, you must re-enrol each academic year.

After you've got your results from the previous academic year, and the re-enrolment system has opened, we'll send an email to your LSBU address inviting you to re-enrol, along with all the information you'll need and a link to the re-enrolment portal.

If you are taking re-sit exams, you'll get your email later – once your re-sits are completed and you have received your results.

If you interrupted during the last academic year and are intending on returning this year, please contact the course administration team via MyAccount who will arrange for your IT account to be reinstated.

If you have any questions about re-enrolment, please see our re-enrolment FAQs


Please see our timetable guide on accessing your timetable from MyLSBU web and app portal.


Visit the key dates page for more on the academic year calendar.


We offer a limited number of places in LSBU’s Halls of Residence to returning students.

LSBU do not allocate on ‘first come first served’ but allocates on the priority order identified in section 3 of the LSBU Accommodation Allocation Policy (PDF File 158 KB).

If your application is unsuccessful we will put you on a waiting list for any cancellations from either the returning student allocation, or if any rooms become available after the intake of first year students in September.

Applications will not be accepted if you have:

  • Been the subject of disciplinary action whilst previously living in an LSBU residence
  • A history of bad debt whilst previously living in an LSBU residence

You can apply for a place in University accommodation by using our online application service.
