Login to Moodle

This guide details how to access Moodle, the virtual learning environment (VLE), used at Warwick.

Moodle uses the same 'single sign on' details as other Warwick services, such as Tabula, email and web pages. The same account is used to access various University systems, websites or platforms making accessing different online services easier.

1. You can access Moodle via or through a link in an email or on a web page shared by teaching or admin staff. These links will usually have the format but may also be redirects.

2. When you access Moodle for the first time the 'Welcome to Moodle' screen will display. If you have previously accessed the University's Moodle system with the same browser, please continue at point 7.

3. Click on 'Sign in' at the top right, or on 'Sign in to Moodle' on the left.

4. The 'Sign in' page will open. Type your University username into the username field, and the associated password into the password field (same details that you use to access your email). You should also select a time period for the browser to remember your details and to keep you signed in for.

5. Click 'Sign in', and you will be taken to the two-factor authentication screen.

6. Type in the verification code generated in your app or sent to you via text message, set the period for which you will not be asked for a code on this browser again, and click 'Sign in'.

7. This will take you to your Moodle Dashboard and you will have successfully accessed Moodle.

Troubleshooting if you are unable to login to Moodle

  • Try a different web browser - Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari or Internet Explorer. Sometimes temporary internet files can stop the single sign on process from redirecting to or authenticating you with Moodle. Contact the Help Desk for assistance with clearing these files.
  • If you are a new starter, you will not be able to access immediately as your details will not have been transferred into Moodle yet. Try accessing again the following day.
  • If you have completed your course, access to Moodle will close after 12 months. Access to module spaces and learning resources depends on your department and may be removed sooner. For more information on account expiry, please see

It is possible to allow other known users, external to the university, to login to Moodle by creating and using a visitor account linked to a University number. Please follow the 'Visitor access to Moodle' guide.
