I've tried logging in to the site but haven't been successful.

On the log-in screen there are two options. University of Bristol students should click the text saying: "University of Bristol Students log in with your University Credentials". This will take you to the single-sign-on prompt and will use your university details. If it doesn't work, let us know via email on All non-students need to register as a guest. You can then sign-on using the non-student sign-in.

I haven't received a confirmation email to validate my website registration account.

Please check your spam or junk folder - it could be lurking in there.  If it isn't, please send an email with your first and last name from the email address that you registered with to .

My details aren't recognised on single-sign on.

If you are experiencing problems please contact

My student ID isn't recognised on single-sign on.

Your student ID is the code of the form 'ab12345' that is given to you as the prefix of your university email
