Introducing our new My Brighton app for student life

My Brighton is our new student portal. It brings together your email, calendar and timetable, study modules and lots more – all in one place.

Use My Brighton on a computer for access to useful software and resources and download the mobile app to use on the move.

How to download or view the My Brighton app

The first time you use the app, you will need to consent for it to access your email and calendar as well as logging into My Studies.

My Studies (replaces studentcentral)

My Studies is a secure online space for students with access to learning materials, assessment and other study related content. There’s also a range of collaborative tools for sharing information, as well as signposting to other University of Brighton services, such as libraries. You’ll be able to log in to the My Brighton portal after you enrol. Then, when you access My Studies through the My Brighton portal you’ll be automatically signed in.

Your timetable

Your timetable for studies is currently being prepared and will be available through the calendar tile within My Brighton in time for the start of teaching. This combines your university email (Office 365) calendar entries with your structured teaching timetable. It’s a great way to organise your term time.

Preparations to ensure safety for both our students and staff has meant a complex organisation to reduce classroom capacities, provide bookable workspaces and transferring teaching online where appropriate. All students will be emailed when timetables have been finalised and available before the teaching semester starts.

Prepare for the new academic year – software and apps to download

Every school and course had provided you a recommended list of software and apps to set up before you return to university this autumn. This was emailed to all students on Friday 7 August with the course description changes and minimum computer specifications needed for online learning. Alternatively, go to our website to ‘Find your course’ for what to expect this autumn.

We’ve also put together some tips for university study. Even if you’ve been at university for a while you may find something to help improve your study techniques and personal organisation.

    Hi, I downloaded the myBrighton app and provided the requested approval to link my email account, but when I click on the email tab in the app I keep getting error messages and can’t access my email. Can this be fixed?
