There are 2 ways to find a student’s USI
Existing USI Search function
This function allows you search for a USI but not make any changes to a student’s details.
You will need the following details to find the USI:
- Last/Family Name
- Date of Birth
You will also need at least one of the following optional details:
- First/Given Name
- Middle Name/s
- Mobile Number
- Town/City of Birth
An email or SMS/text message notification will be sent to the student when you locate their USI.
Find USI function
This function allows you to search with minimal details and update a student’s details.
To update their first or last name or date of birth you will need to see a form of identification with their new details.
You will not need any identification to update their preferred name, gender or contact details.

Should the additional information not locate a unique account, please contact the student to confirm whether they have commenced any study since 2015 that may have required a USI.
If the student has no knowledge of any existing USI account, the student should attempt to create their own USI account online and generate a ‘Help Request’. The student will then need to contact the Office of the Student Identifiers Registrar (OSIR) to resolve any issues.
