An email will be sent to your personal email address approx. three weeks before your official start date.  Your student ID number can be found on your NottinghamHub applicant portal. You will not be able to activate your University username until you have received this email.

  1. Sign on to NottinghamHub with your applicant details
  2. Select your name in the top right corner
  3. Under 'My Profile', you will find University ID (this is your student ID number)

Once you have activated your new University username and set your password, you can then log back into but this time log in using your new University username and password (not your applicant username and password) to complete your online registration.

Once your account has been activated it can take a few minutes before all aspects of your account become available so wait 15-20 minutes before accessing NottinghamHub or your email account.

If you continue to experience problems please contact the IT service desk via the Self Serve portal ( or by ringing  the Help Desk on 01159516677.
