(pictured below) are installed in all teaching spaces across the University.
You can record your attendance by simply tapping your student card on the reader.
You can watch a video on how to use the system or read through the information below.
No, the readers will work with the card you already have, you just need to turn up and tap-in.
Simply tap your student card on the reader where you see the contactless logo:
As long as you tap-in on a Student Card Reader in the right teaching space at the right time your attendance will be recorded automatically.
The Student Card Reader will display a large green tick and issue a single beep to acknowledge that your card has been read. If you are not sure if your card has been read, just tap it on the reader again. Multiple reads of your card will not affect your attendance record as the time and date of the first successful read will be used to determine when you attended.
Student Card Readers are normally located within each teaching space. Large lecture theatres will have multiple readers in them located to minimise congestion and wait time. It is important that you tap-in on a reader for the teaching space you are scheduled to attend in, otherwise your attendance will not be recorded.
You can tap-in from 20 minutes before the start of a teaching session until 20 minutes before the end, though it will be easiest if you tap-in as you arrive. For example, if you were attending a lecture that started at 9am and finished at 9.50am you could tap-in at any time from 8.40am until 9.30am. Anyone tapping in after the first 15 minutes of a session will be recorded as attending late, provided they arrive before the cut-off point 20 minutes before the end. If you tap-in too early or too late your attendance will not be recorded.
Please still attend your teaching events. Even if you don't have your student card you can make sure your attendance is recorded by informing the person leading the event at the end of the session.
If you have lost your student card you can obtain a replacement from the Central Hub, 1st floor, Student Central. Replacement cards can be ordered online.
No, if you find an old student card after obtaining a replacement, only your current card will work.
We know things don't always go to plan. You can record your own absence here. Please note, you may be asked to provide proof of your absence, and may be asked to attend a meeting if you have a large number of absences. Watch the video below on how to record your absence.
It is important that you notify the university if you are unable to attend, otherwise you will be expected to do so.
You must never ask another student to tap-in using your card if you are not present in the teaching space. Such behaviour will lead to all of those involved facing a charge of student misconduct that could lead to termination of studies with the University.
It is important that you inform the person leading the teaching event as soon as possible if there is a problem with the Student Card Reader. They will organise collection of the attendance information via a register.
You can visit hull.seats.cloud , you will be able to see the attendance history in your calendar. Attendance information is updated in real time.
Please raise an enquiry in the myHull Portal to your Student Hub or the Student Tap-In & Attendance Team if you think your attendance information has been recorded incorrectly.
The University will be informed automatically when students are not attending their timetabled teaching events, so it is important you tap-in or make sure your attendance is recorded by the person leading the teaching event.
If you have any questions about Student tap-in you can raise an enquiry in the myHull Portal to the Student Tap-In & Attendance Team.
