The Basics: The Student Hub and logging on

An introduction to some of the basics of using the library and computing facilities at the University of Huddersfield

The Student Hub

The Student Hub gives you access to University resources from any location, including:

  • e-mail (UniMail)

  • UniLearn (access to learning resources for your modules)

  • your Library account and library resources via Summon

  • Contacts for advice and support

Logging on and your username

Your username is the letter ‘u’ followed by the first 7 digits of your campus card,

e.g. u1512345

Your password is set to your date of birth in this format: 22mar96

Activate your IT account and change your password on the IT Account Activation System.

PLEASE NOTE: Your username and password are the same for logging on to the computers, email, Summon, Unilearn, Student Hub and My Details and are linked together. Therefore if you change your password for any of them it will change it for all of them.
