Getting Started


What is studentcentral?

Studentcentral is the student intranet for the University of Brighton and is a ‘one stop shop’ for everything students need while studying here. It comprises a suite of web-based tools to support learning and teaching and therefore provides enormous potential for staff and students to benefit from information being available practically anywhere and at any time. You can login to studentcentral using your usual university username and password.


What is Blackboard?

Blackboard is the commerical product that we use as do a large proportion of universities around the world. Rather than call it by it’s commercial name, we rebrand it as ‘studentcentral’. Sometimes on this site you will be directed to the Blackboard site for help documentation. In essence, Blackboard and studentcentral are the same thing.
