Durham University

Student Registry


Enrolment is where you check, confirm and update your personal information held by the University. Both new and continuing students are required to complete enrolment. You will also need to accept the University's regulations.

Getting started

How do I access enrolment?

The system is accessed through duo (Durham University online), the University's learning environment.

When can I access enrolment?

For new students, you'll receive a message to your personal email account when you can log on to the system. Please note that at busy times, this may take up to a few weeks after you accept your place at Durham. For continuing students, you'll receive an email to your Durham email account when enrolment is open.

What do I need?

You need your CIS username and password. For new students, this will be emailed to your personal email account once you've accepted your place at Durham, so it's important to make sure we have your most up-to-date email address details. There is lots of guidance on the enrolment pages but you will find it useful to have the following information to hand:

  • Term time address and telephone details
  • Emergency contact details
  • Tuition fee payment information including sponsor details where applicable
  • New students also have the opportunity to upload a photograph so that your campus card can be ready for collection
