About the RISISweb portal

Staff and students generally access RISIS via the web. The RISIS portal gives appropriate access to University of Reading student data for staff, students, postgraduate applicants and past students.

Staff and current students log into the portal using their University username and the matching password. Applicants, enrolling students and graduates are also able to log in, using their student number instead of their username, and their date of birth (in the format ddmmyyyy) as a password. Students have a second, security password as a second screen when logging in, which protects their personal data.

The Student Information Systems Team (RISIS Office) receives a weekly feed of data from HR for new starters and records are set up in response. If you have recently started and have been given your username but have not yet been granted RISIS access, please email us by using the link on the right.
