Please note: Current students require an OU Microsoft Office365 account to access OpportunityHub. If you are currently studying and do not have an OU Microsoft Office365 account, the OU can provide you with one free of charge. To activate your OU Microsoft Office365 account and set up your @ou.ac.uk email address simply log in to any OU website and follow the prompt to change your password.
First choose to login as “Current Student and Staff”, you will then be taken to a Microsoft log-in page and asked to enter your email address. This will be your OU Computer Username (OUCU) followed by @ou.ac.uk, for example firstname.lastname@example.org.
Click 'Next' and the following page will ask you to enter your password, this is the same password you use to access other OU web services, e.g. StudentHome. Enter your password and click 'Sign in' to log in to OpportunityHub.
Communications sent to you through OpportunityHub will use the email address associated with your student record, to check what this is or change your preferred email address, please visit your Profile page on StudentHome.
You will have access to OpportunityHub for up to three years after you’ve finished studying.
You first need to register, to do this select the “New User?” option, followed by “Graduate”. On the following page enter the required information, choose your username and password then click/tap “Register”.
You will need to wait for a member of staff to approve your registration before proceeding, this may take up to 72 hours but will usually be much faster. You will receive an email to advise you once your registration has been approved.
When you return to OpportunityHub simply choose to login as a Graduate, then enter the username and password you chose.
