4. Attend your academic inductionWe understand these are unprecedented times and starting university during this time is going to be a year like no other. Each student will be invited to an induction session where you will get to know your course, your classmates, your university life, what being at the University of East London will mean for you and how to make the most of your studies. These sessions are vital to ensuring your success at the University. Details of your induction can be found on Track My Future.
5. Meet your academic advisor
At the University of East London, our academics are committed to helping you succeed. You'll get to know your academic advisor early on when you start with us. You don't need a reason to get in touch, just drop them a line and arrange a virtual one to one meeting. They will become your academic guide as you progress through your student journey, helping you to overcome challenges, make study choices, and shape your next steps beyond graduation. An academic advisor will be allocated to you at the start of your academic journey and you will be introduced to them in the first week of teaching. Further details about academic advisors and what to expect in each meeting are available in Moodle.
6. Learn how to use library
Library, Archives and Learning Services provide access to high-quality academic resources, expert advice, and inspirational study spaces in modern library buildings on both our Stratford and Docklands campuses. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are unable to operate our libraries 24/7 during term time. You can find the latest opening times on the intranet.
To keep you safe our libraries are operating with social distancing in place for individual study only.
We have introduced ‘QuickMeet Spaces’ around the campuses which are in line with UK government guidelines. These are clearly identifiable, or you can find your nearest QuickMeet Space on our intranet. The spaces are intended to be used as a short-term space to meet with classmates to discuss projects or assignments.

Docklands campus is also home to SportsDock, our world-class sport facility, students can get discounted memberships for the gym here. Sessions will depend on Covid-19 restrictions.
