CWL Sign Up and Library Access

Real Estate Division Credit Program students require a Campus Wide Login (CWL) in order to access online exams and the online resources of the UBC library.

In order to obtain a Student CWL, you will need to know your 8-digit UBC Student Number/ID (not your 7-digit Real Estate Division student number), which you can find on your program acceptance letter you received when you first registered with the Real Estate Division. You can also click on Student Profile on your Course Resources webpage to find your 8-digit UBC ID.
