 Recent Service Changes:

my.bham portal closed 15 July

Updated: 4 Aug 2021 at 1:28pm Birmingham Affected

In order to increase University efficiency and simplify access to our digital services we closed the my.bham portal for staff and students on Thursday 15 July.

The license for the current portal platform expired at the end of July and access to the majority of the digital services available through the Portal has now been moved to the University intranet. These are available via the Digital Services pages: Digital services for staff and Digital services for students.

Anyone attempting to access the my.bham Portal from the 15 July onwards will be redirected to these pages.

Some services such as past exam papers and exam timetables also ended on 15 July. New solutions to replace these services are being developed by the University.
