Arriving at Edge Hill (living at home/commuting)

For students who will be living at home/commuting, this is where you can find out when you need to come onto campus.


Your first day

Your first day on campus will be the day that you complete stage two of online enrolment in order to become a registered student and release your student finance.  You will also receive your Unicard.

To know what day you need to come in and where you need to go, you must download an electronic copy of your Induction Week. Choose your degree programme from the drop-down list and select the ‘Induction Week timetable’ tab to download your timetable. A hard copy of the timetable and your Unicard will be provided by your department during your first session.
