Your Personal Record IDentifier (PRID) is a set of numbers and letters that the University uses to uniquely identify all students and staff. You need your PRID to access some University services.
Getting your PRID
A PRID is generated overnight once you firmly accept an offer to study at Essex. Your PRID will be in your pre-arrival information pack and posted on your applicant portal (on the Home tab in the Personal details box).
If you need your PRID earlier than this, provided you have accepted your offer, you can request it from firstname.lastname@example.org.
A PRID is normally generated overnight once you accept a conditional or unconditional offer to study at Essex. You'll receive an email with your PRID and it will be posted on your applicant portal.
