Sign up for tutorials, labs, and studios

Use the myAllocator tool to sign up for tutorials, labs, and studios.

MyAllocator is the tool you'll use to sign up for small group sessions such as tutorials, labs, and studios. It also displays your lecture timetable, so that you can make sure you only sign up for sessions that don't clash with lectures for other courses.

Sign up for tutorials, labs, and studios by logging in to myAllocator using your University username and password.

Using myAllocator

Sign-ups for your course's tutorials, labs, and studios don't all open at once, so you may need to log in a number of times.

We have added a guide below to help you with using myAllocator.

When to sign up for tutorials, labs, and studios

Most tutorials will not be loaded into myAllocator until the start of the first trimester. Tutorials that are loaded may not be immediately available for sign up. If you are concerned about your tutorial being unavailable, contact your course coordinator. You can find contact details for your course coordinator on the course page—which you can find via the course finder search tool.

If you don’t find your courses in myAllocator, check Blackboard or ask your school administrator. Make a note of your tutorials on your timetable.

Checklist for using myAllocator

Before you use myAllocator, check that:

  • you have been enrolled in your course for 48 hours or more
  • you have got your University username and password
  • you know that your tutorials are available for sign-up.

It's useful to know that:

  • Tutorials will be automatically saved when you select them.
  • There is no logout button, so remember to close your browser session if you are using a public or shared computer.

About tutorials, labs, and studios

As well as lectures, your courses will typically involve smaller group learning sessions led by a tutor, lab demonstrator, or lecturer. Depending on the subject you're studying, you may have tutorials, labs, or studios. These sessions give you a chance to engage in discussion, do experiments and project work, and get individual assistance.

Tutorials usually start two to three weeks into each trimester. You can find more information about tutorials, labs, and studios in the Course Outline of each of your courses.
