Your Email

Get to know exactly how your student email works.

Why your student email is important

All email communication from us will be sent to your @live.blackburn.ac.uk email address. Make sure you have access to your account on your phone or set the emails to forward to your personal email address.

How to access your student email

  • To access your email, simply go to the homepage of our website, click on “Staff & Students” and then “Student Email”.
  • Your email address is your student number 12345678 followed by @live.blackburn.ac.uk. If you aren’t sure what your ID number is, it is printed on your Student ID card.
  • Your password is your first initial as a capital letter, then the initial of you surname in lowercase, followed by your date of birth in 8 digits 01092000. So if your name is Joe Bloggs and your date of birth is 1st September 2000 your password would be Jb01092000.

Moodle and your timetable

Moodle is designed to enhance your learning experience by providing access to online course materials.

What is Moodle?

Moodle is your virtual learning environment. It allows you to:

  • Access course materials
  • Gain feedback
  • Contact tutors
  • Upload work
  • See grades
  • and much more

Moodle is very simple to use. The system is laid out as simply as possible to take the stress out of uploading new assignments and receiving feedback, with messages sent automatically to your email.

How to access Moodle

Go to Moodle directly or visit the Staff & Students page, then click or tap "Moodle".

Once on Moodle, log in using your username and password.

Your login for Moodle is your student number e.g. 12345678. If you aren’t sure what your ID number is, it is printed on your Student ID card.

Your password is your first initial as a capital letter, then the initial of you surname in lowercase, followed by your date of birth in 8 digits 01092000. So if your name is Joe Bloggs and your date of birth is 1st September 2000 your password would be Jb0192000.

Further guidance on how to use Moodle can be found on the Moodle Helpdesk.

Your timetable and how to access it

Your timetable can be accessed through Moodle.

The importance of checking your timetable

Make sure you check your timetable online so you know where to go and when. If there are any last minute changes to your timetable, such as a room change, this will be shown in your online timetable.

How to access your timetable

To access your timetable log in to Moodle, see Accessing Moodle for help, click on dashboard and then click to see your timetable. Alternatively visit one of our Timetable Stations around campus and scan your ID card.

Can't find your timetable?

Don't worry! We are still finalising some timetables, which will be released before you start your course in September. In the meantime, familiarise yourself with Moodle - and be sure to regularly login and check for your timetable over the coming weeks.
