Getting Started: IT at Oxford

If you’ve just joined the University, whether you’re a student or a new member of staff, we have guidance on the IT Services Getting Started webpages to help you get set up with all your basic IT needs, such as email and internet access.

Once your department has confirmed to you that you have met all the conditions of your offer, you should return your completed University card form in line with the guidance provided by your department. We will then create your University card (Student ID) and your Single Sign-On (SSO) account, as well as provide you with a username and password to access many services at Oxford. This includes your email account, the student self-service portal and access to the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). 

For more information and step-by-step guidance for setting up your essential IT accounts, visit our Getting Started web pages. These pages include an easy-to-follow guide on what IT equipment to bring to Oxford, as well as a guide to different Oxford IT accounts, and how you can get online as soon as you come in Michaelmas Term.

The next step will be to complete your online registration.
