Student Services

Portico: The UCL Student Information Service

Portico is UCL’s student information service and is available to everybody across UCL via the web portal – http://www.ucl.ac.uk/portico. You will need to log on using the UCL username and password you are given at enrolment and are the same details you use to log onto any UCL restricted webpages, your UCL email account and the student Windows Terminal Service (WTS). If you do not know them or if you forget them, you need to visit the ISD Service Desk as soon as possible: http://www.ucl.ac.uk/isd/students/connections/passwords/faq/forgotten_password.

We strongly advise you to register for the User Authentication Service (https://myaccount.ucl.ac.uk/uas-register/) which will allow you to change your password online rather than in person at the DMS Watson Library.

Your password will automatically expire after 150 days unless you change it before then. You will receive a warning 30 days before your password is due to expire to remind you to change it. You cannot use the same password twice and your password must be 8 characters long and at least three of the characters must be either lowercase and / or uppercase characters, a number and / or a symbol, e.g. ! % ^ * ( ) _ + - = " ` ; < > , ? / @ $ & [ ] { } BUT NOT £ : | \ ~

On Portico, you can;

  • Edit your personal details, e.g. your contact address and phone number which must be kept up to date
  • Complete online module registration
  • View data about your modules
  • View your exam results online
  • Update your Key Skills information
  • Monitor your HEAR data

Key Skills

As part of Portico, you can also manage a description of your ‘Key Skills, extra-curricular activities which will increase your employability at the end of your degree.

Information on building Key Skills into your UCL course is available online at: http://www.ucl.ac.uk/ppd
