Get a head start this term

Today (26 September) marks the start of teaching for most academic programmes, with many students coming onto campus for teaching or to use our student facilities and services.

Below you’ll find an overview of things to remember before you head onto campus, and some tips to make this week go a little easier.

View your academic timetable

The semester one academic timetable for 2022/23 is available for all students to view on the Timetables App and in the Timetable Portal . If you haven’t checked your timetable yet, please do so as soon as possible.

If you are a new student, you will need to have completed your academic registration and activated your computing account before you are able to access the Timetable Portal and Timetable App.

Walk with us

Our ‘Here to Help’ team will be available on campus throughout this week to help you find your way to your lectures and teaching sessions. This is also a great opportunity to meet fellow students and make that first journey without the worry of getting lost.

You can find the team next to the Alsop Building (just under the walkway) on University Square from 8.30am-2.30pm everyday this week. No booking necessary, just turn up, say ‘hi’ and join us as we walk together.

Here to Help online chat

While the ‘Here to Help’ hub closed last week, all this week you can use our ‘Here to Help’ online chat via the My Liverpool app. On the chat you can speak directly to University staff and students who can help you find the answers you need.

IT issues or concerns

If you haven’t yet activated your university computing account you can find all the information for how to do this here. If you have any IT issues, such as accessing your university account or email, please contact our IT Services department via Service Desk.

Get to know your campus

If you haven’t spent much time on campus make sure you take the time over the next couple of weeks to familiarise yourself with the student services and facilities available. These include our Sports & Fitness Centre, Libraries, Guild of Students, Careers Studio and Student Support Services.

Get involved in your community

Whether this is your first or last year, a great way to connect with your student neighbourhood is to seek out volunteering opportunities. It will give you the chance to integrate into your new community, meet new people and gain some valuable work experience which, in some cases, can be added to your Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR) once you graduate. You can find opportunities via Careers and Employability, through Liverpool Guild of Students, or simply by connecting with the relevant organisations in your area.
