At Warwick, we have a great range of resources to get you connected to your studies and your community. We're currently working on a minimum specification of recommended devices, and we'll post this on this page when confirmed.
IT Services account
You will need your IT Services (ITS) account to access all of the IT resources at Warwick, including your student email which is how you will find out about important information from the University. You can do this as part of the enrolment process.
Once you're set up, it's a good idea to read the ITS guide for new students to find out more about the services available to you.
The Warwick mobile app is called My Warwick. It's available on iPhone and Android phones (and tablets) as well as on the desktop. You can access your own personalised Welcome Week timetable through the My Warwick app.
My Warwick brings together information about many aspects of life at Warwick, pulling data out of the systems used for timetabling, coursework, learning content, news and events, etc, and putting everything you need to know into a single place. It can be used to view your teaching timetable, keep on top of your coursework deadlines, check your emails and calendar, get bus times and traffic alerts, see a weather forecast, and more.
My Warwick sends you alerts when something needs your attention. You'll get an alert when an assignment deadline is approaching, a library book is due back soon, and so on. Your department can send you alerts if a lecture is moved or cancelled. You will also get reminders about events in your Welcome Week timetable, and alerts if a space becomes available on an event.
The Welcome Week timetable is where you will find all the events that have automatically added for you, that are part of the Academic Induction from your department. You will also find a variety of optional events that have been organised by other members of the University community, including the Students' Union, Sports Clubs and Societies, as well as other University departments such as Wellbeing. From Monday 9 September, you can access the timetable online or through the MyWarwick app.
We recommend dowloading Microsoft Teams onto your smartphone or laptop. Teams will be used for a variety of events during Welcome Week, as well as throughout your course.
Find out how you can access your Office 365 account. If you are using the desktop version of Teams, sign in using your IT Services usercode (replace usercode with your own ITS usercode) and password in the following format:
E-vision is the software used to enrol new and returning students. You can find out more information about the process and what you will need to enrol on our enrolment pages.
You will need a portable computing device for the academic year 2020/21. If your department provides you with guidance make sure that you refer to the departmental guidance as they may recommend a higher specification. There is also advice if you are concerned about the cost of purchasing IT equipment.
