Registration and Login FAQs

If your question is not answered below please contact us on +44 (0)1225 386824.

I have a User ID and password but the User ID is not recognised by the alumni system.

You may not have waited long enough for your registration to be processed - it will take a day or so as each registration has to be approved individually. Please try again tomorrow.

My activation code ID is not recognised.

You may be trying to enter your activation code in the username field on the login page: please go to the New User Registration form to enter your activation ID code. Once your registration is approved you may go back to the login page and enter your username and password to use all the functions available to our alumni.

What do I put for User ID?

Enter your preferred User ID - you will use your User ID every time you log in to the website.

What do I put for my password?

You will use your password every time you login to the web site. Please note:

  • Your password must be at least six characters long.
  • Your password is NOT your activation code (see above).

What do I put for password reminder phrase?

Enter a password reminder phrase which will jog your memory if you forget your password.

What do I put for activation code ID?

Your activation code ID is a unique code which you will need to register. It enables us to make sure that you are a Bath alumnus. This should have been sent to you but if you’ve lost it, email with your name, year of graduation, date of birth and current address and we will send it to you.

What do the small red stars mean?

These stars indicate a required field.

Can I change my password?

Yes. You need to login, then, in the left hand navigation bar, select Bath Alumni Online, then Update My Profile, then Change my User ID or Password.

What do I do if I forget my password?

If you have forgotten your password, follow the 'forgotten password' link from the login page. Enter your User ID and you will be sent an email containing your reminder phrase. If you still cannot remember your password, please email and we will reset your password for you. 

What do I do if I forget my User ID?

Email with your full name, date of birth and year of graduation and we will send it to you.
