Registration for new students

The University of Greenwich extends a warm welcome to all new students.
As a new student, there are a few procedures you have to go through in order to be fully registered and to access university facilities.

September and October 2017 starters

To ensure you can register, please check that you have completed all of the processes leading up to registration

When your record is ready for registration and registration is open, we will send two e-mails to your personal e-mail address. One e-mail will give you your portal username and the other your portal password, as well as information about how to register.

The registration process is in two parts:

Part 1: Online Registration

This part requires you to log in to the university portal and go through an online process to verify information about yourself and your new programme of study.You will also be asked for payment of your fees. Once you have completed Part 1, you will be given instructions about Part 2: Registration Checks.

Online Registration will close on Thursday 12 October at 9am for all continuing students, and August, September and October new starters.

Part 2: Registration Checks

If you are returning to the university on a new programme of study after having completed an award with us in the past, you should have been allocated the same ID number as you had then. If that is not the case, ie you have been given a new student ID number, please email us at registration@gre.ac.uk with your full name, your date of birth, the new ID number and details of the programme you completed as well as the ID number you had then, if you remember it. This will allow us to check your record(s) and make any adjustments if necessary.
