Registration is the process by which an applicant who has accepted an offer of a place formally becomes a student at Lancaster University.
Registration must be completed to receive full access to IT and Library resources.
You will receive an email containing more information about registration and the login details you need to complete online pre-registration at https://mylusi.lancs.ac.uk/PreRegistration If you don’t receive this you can complete it at the registration event when you arrive. There is a schedule of registration events during intro-week depending on your course of study. Check the schedule in The Guide (link to The Guide pdf) for when you should register.
It is especially important to register if you are an international student, because if you don’t register we will report this to the Home Office and they will curtail (cancel) your leave to remain and you will have to leave the UK.
