If you've arrived late and missed Welcome Week activities, don't worry! Support is on hand to help you settle in. Take a look at the checklist below for what you need to do to get started at Queen Mary.

1. Complete enrolment.

The enrolment deadline is Friday 6 October. If you are temporarily enrolled, you must complete enrolment by Friday 20 October. Find out what you need to do here

2. Check you’ve received your IT login details

Your IT username and password information should have been emailed to you directly over the summer. If you haven't had yours or are having difficulty logging in, please contact IT Services at helpdesk@qmul.ac.uk or call 0207 882 8888.

3. Find out who is your Student Support Officer, and contact them to find out key information for starting your studies.

You Student Support Officer will be able to help you find the information you've missed and develop a study plan to help you catch up. 

4. Find out who your Academic Advisor/Personal Tutor is and arrange to meet them.

You may have already received an email inviting you to a meeting with your Academic Advisor or Personal Tutor. You can look up who it is and their contact details via the MySIS student record system. Your Student Support Officer will also be able to point you in the right direction. 

5. Look at our information about the library and student support services.

The Library has lots of information for new students to help you get used to using the facilities. We also have extensive support services for all students, including the Advice and Counselling Service, the Disability and Dyslexia Service, and the Language Centre. Find out about all the support available to you on the student webpages: My.QMUL.

6. Log on to QMplus and view the videos to get started on how to use it.

QMplus is our virtual learning environment at Queen Mary. You log in using your IT username and password. There are a number of video tutorials to help you get started.

7. Get involved with societies, events and trips with the Queen Mary Students' Union.

 The Students' Union is there to support you and improve students' lives. There are more than 250 societies, sports and social groups that you can join to meet new people and expand your horizons, as well as plenty of volunteering and media opportunities. Throughout the first semester, they are running the ‘Try something new’ series of events and taster sessions, which don't require membership or long-term commitment, so you're free to sample as many as possible!
