MUSE for offer holders


As part of our extended community, if you're holding a University of Sheffield offer you're entitled to access the members area of our website, MUSE – My University of Sheffield Environment.

Using MUSE is the easiest way to:

  • Book to attend departmental open days
  • Apply for University accommodation (available from March)
  • Apply for scholarships
  • Complete pre-registration tasks

If you go on to register as a student at the University, you’ll continue to use MUSE to download course materials, manage your student record and access University services. And you’ll still be able to use MUSE after you’ve graduated.

Accessing MUSE

To access MUSE you need to set up your University account. Within 48 hours of issuing your offer, we'll send you an email from containing your username and inviting you to activate your account by following the instructions in our account activation site:

Account activationWhen you’ve activated your account you can access MUSE at any time by selecting ‘Log in to MUSE’ in the black bar along the top of any web page.

Account recovery for current students

I've previously studied at the University. Do I need to set up a new account?

Yes. Your existing/old account will remain active until you've completed your original course, but while you're holding an offer for a new course you'll also need access to the applicants' view of MUSE. You'll need a new username and password for that.

What do I do after setting up my MUSE account?

In preparation for you studying with us, we'll email you a set of Pre-Registration tasks that you need to complete via MUSE, so it's important that you check your inbox regularly. Please see the below page for full information on registration:
