You have accepted your offer and are now ready to study at the University of Adelaide, congratulations! So what next?
Sometimes its hard to know where to start, we are here to help and we will be with you every step of the way.
Working through this step by step guide will help you setup your University services, plan and enrol in courses, get your student ID card and guide you through o'week.
New students, with an Australian mailing address, will also receive a copy of the 2018 student guide (pdf file) in the mail.
Setup your online services
Activate your student account
As a new student you will receive a student ID number, also known as your username, in your welcome email. You will need this number to activate your account and setup your password.
To activate your account and start accessing the University's online services:

Now you have your ID Number and Password sorted out, you can access STUi, the University’s guide to help you through the process of setting up everything else and completing your enrolment. STUi will guide you through the steps and you can come and go as often as you please. The progress bar in STUi will show you how much you have done and the menu bar on the left will show you all the steps – both completed and still to do.
We recommend you complete the first few steps as soon as possible. Once you get to actually enrolling, you will only be able to enrol in classes once they are open. You can check opening dates here.
