What to do before your first session

Please check your Inbox for joining instructions emails, or your spam/junk folder. City Lit will send you two reminder emails: one three days before your course starts and one day before your course starts.

If the instruction email mentions that your course will use Google Classroom, try logging in before your course starts.

 

How do I access Google Classroom?

You will need to log into your City Lit student IT account, to do this you will need:

 Your student number
 The Google Classroom class code
 Your City Lit student email address (your student number @student.citylit.ac.uk, e.g.123456@student.citylit.ac.uk)

The reminder emails that we send before your course starts will have your student number and your Google Classroom Class code.

If you haven't logged into your Student IT account yet please follow this step-by-step guide
