If you are a new student, it may take a couple of weeks for you to be added to our system.

If you are an alumnus or staff member of the University of Salford, or are not a student, you can register an account on our website as a guest user.

If you are still having problems registering, please email, letting us know what you're having problems with, and any error messages that are appearing. We will do our best to solve your problem and get you registered.
