You must complete both parts of the Registration/Activation processes in order to enable access to university systems i.e. Blackboard, Student Hub, Student Email, etc.
Register fully on ICON (the University's Student Records System).
You will be sent a username (ie. your student ID number) and password by Data Management as part of online registration process for confirming your registration on your module or course. You will be asked to change the password and to log into ICON to fill in all your details and complete the registration process.
You won't be added to our IT systems and won't be able to do your account activation until you fully complete this registration process.
Top tip: have a digital photo of yourself to hand, so you can upload it into your registration, this is added to your student record and is used on your Cumbria Card (student ID).
To gain access to the extensive range of IT services that your university offers, you need to activate your network account and then test your activation by logging into the Student Hub. As a Distance Learner student - follow the First Log On ➡ Off campus instructions on the Passwords and Logins page.

Your Cumbria Card is your University of Cumbria student ID. You can use this to withdraw books, if you visit one of our campuses, but also use it as evidence of your student status when visiting other libraries. If you uploaded a photo during your online registration, then a Cumbria Card will be produced for you and will be held at Lancaster. Email email@example.com, from your student email account, asking for this to be posted out to you.
If you did not upload a photo, you can email a jpeg format headshot to firstname.lastname@example.org (from your student email account) and one will be produced and posted to your registered address.
