Strathlife Before you arrive

We’re really looking forward to welcoming you as a student to the University of Strathclyde. There’s just a few things you need to do to register as a student before you arrive.


You must register online to confirm your personal, financial, and academic details. We need you to register before the start of your programme, as this lets us know you’re taking up your place at the University of Strathclyde.

You’ll receive an email letting you know when the registration link is available to PEGASUS (your student record). Current registration arrangements can be found on our dedicated registration pages.

If you experience any difficulties with the process, contact:

Get accommodation

If you’re going to be living away from home, we recommend you secure accommodation as soon as your place has been confirmed.

Find out more on our accommodation pages.

Your University account

You'll be sent a DS (University) account username in the registration emails from the Admissions team. We'll start sending these emails towards the end of July through to September, depending on what stage your application is at.

If you have not or cannot remember your password, you can reset your password.


As a new student at the University of Strathclyde, you’ll be given a unique university email address. This will stay with you throughout the length of your programme of study. This is the email address that the University will use to communicate with you on all matters relating to your studies. We strongly recommend that you regularly log into this account.

Between now and the start of the term, you must continue to regularly check your personal email address as the University may email important information to you.
