University of Huddersfield Hub

The Student Hub gives you access to a wealth of resources at the University of Huddersfield. Login using your University Username (eg U1312345) and Password and you will have instant access to:

  • Unilearn, E-mail, timetables
  • Personal Storage Download, Your Library Account
  • University News
  • Attendance monitoring ​​

The Student Hub (sometimes referred to by the name PortalPlus or “the portal” which we used to use) is your gateway to the University’s services.  You’ll find a log in screen for it at

From the Student Hub, you can get access to many of the University’s main services without needing to enter your login details again.  It’s where you’ll find your timetable, your library account, email, K drive, UniLearn and other useful information.  It’s also where you can access the Cover Sheet system for handing in work and request deadline extensions or register extenuating circumstances.

If you can log in to a University computer but you can’t get into Student Hub, sometimes a change of password will help – this will synchronise your password across all of the University’s systems.

Staff Hub

The Staff Hub provides a single place where University staff can access systems such as Unilearn, access University networks and software, and read emails.  You will find the latest news, events, topical polls, staff development opportunities and a message board where you can sell or give away items.  You can connect and share ideas with your colleagues with our Staff Discussion Board and access the University’s online community, the Social Media Hub.  In short, there’s pretty much everything that you’ll need, all in one place.

The Staff Hub is the main source of central staff information, including everything from the latest staff news to useful links to information.  To ensure that you don’t miss out on useful information most staff computers are automatically set up to have the Staff Hub as the default homepage when you log in.

The Online systems tab provides links to email, My Students, Summon, timetables, UniLearn, Unishare and Wisdom.

If you are on the campus wireless network or off-campus, you’ll be asked for your login name and password.

To make full use of all the features on the online tab, you must complete the registration details.  You will need to register only once each year.  Just enter your usual University username and password – the same ones you use when you log into a campus PC.
