Applicants who are away from home in August may authorise someone to take the necessary action on their behalf.
Failure to respond to your offer promptly will delay the despatch of your Welcome Guide.
Guides containing information about Enrolment and Registration will begin to be emailed from the end of August onwards to those who have accepted an unconditional offer of a place. If you have confirmed to Queen's that you are taking up your place but have not received your Guide by 6 September, please contact the Student Helpline (Tel: +44 (0) 28 9097 3223; firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Guide will be emailed to you at the email address provided in your application so it is important that you notify both UCAS and the Admissions and Access Service of any change to your contact details.
Your Welcome Guide will contain your username (student number) and password. You will be able to use these to log into your new Queen’s email account. Please check this on a regular basis as the University and your academic department (School) will begin to use your Queen’s email to send you crucial information that you need to know before arriving.
The 2021-22 academic year will commence on Monday 20 September 2021, for all undergraduate students, except for those on programmes with approved earlier start dates.

Enrolment and Registration
Enrolment and Registration commences on 6 September 2021 for the majority of new students. You will complete online registration and then will be asked to book an appointment for matriculation. Details of this, including the venue will be included in your Welcome Guide that will be emailed to your personal email account.
It is not until you have completed the full registration process that you will be a fully enrolled student of Queen’s and entitled to use the wide range of services and facilities.
If all registration is not fully completed without good reason by 15 October 2021, you will be withdrawn from the University. If you wish to re-register and are permitted to do so, a re-registration fee of £50 will be charged.
