MyAttendance student user guide

Installing the app

App icon screen grab

Download the UWE Bristol MyAttendance app via the Google Play or Apple stores.

Please ensure that your location services are enabled as a snapshot of your current location will be taken when you record your attendance through the app. This is extra verification of your attendance. The app will not be recording your GPS location at other time, only at the second you check-in to your class.

App log in

Select profile screen grab

Once the app has downloaded, open and select the Student/Staff profile from the options listed.

Enter login details screen grab

Enter your UWE Bristol username and password.

There is a known issue currently with logging in to the system for the first time whilst connected to the Eduroam WiFi. If you log in, accept the terms and conditions, and an error page loads or the screen remains blank, hit the back button. You will then be asked to accept the terms and conditions for a second time and will automatically be logged in.

MyAttendance home screen grab

This will load the UWE Bristol MyAttendance homepage.

The homepage has two tiles. One has your timetable and the other tile enables you to check in to teaching events. This is how you will record your attendance.


Timetable icon screen grab

Use this tile to view your timetable. You can view your timetable for the whole year by scrolling across the weeks.

Clicking on specific events will give you the option to email the lecturer or add the event to your phone calendar.

Timetable screen grab

Your timetable will check for the most up to date information whenever it is connected to the internet or when you pull down on the weekly view to refresh.

Last updated screen grab

The bottom of the screen will tell you when it was last updated.

Check in

Record attendance tile screen grab

To record your attendance at a teaching event you will need to tap on this tile.

You will only be able to enter this code during the teaching session; you will not be able to enter it at any other time. This means, for example, that if your timetable states that your lecture will start at 9am and finish at 10am, you will only be able to enter the 6-digit code from 9am until 10am, after 10am the check-in function will be closed.

Check in screen grab

Tap on the check-in box to enter the 6 digit code (which will be provided by your lecturer).

Submit screen grab

Once you have entered the correct code the submit box will go bright green and you can tap on it to confirm your attendance.

Checked in screen grab

You will know your attendance has been recorded when the tick image is displayed.

GPS location screen grab

At the very moment you tap the submit box, the app will take a snapshot of your GPS location. This is to verify that you are in the teaching room.

The app won’t record your GPS location at any other time.


You may receive notifications from the app to remind you that a timetabled session is due to start soon. During the pilot we are trialling the notification with just a few groups of the students on the pilot programmes so if you don’t receive them it is nothing to worry about.
