New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on November 28, 2022) follows:

Access to a university education is one of the most important steps for every student. However, the process can also become somewhat complicated for many.

Fortunately, there are organizations like UCAS to help solve the problem. UCAS basically aims to facilitate the admission of students to universities, helping during the application process.


However, it seems that currently the UCAS website hub is down or not working, as many users are unable to login.

UCAS website hub down, not working, or unable to login

According to multiple reports, UCAS website hub section is totally inaccessible to many users at the time of writing this story.

‘Hub’ is the section of the website where each student begins with the search for educational options, to finally decide the one that best suits their tastes.

But currently, many cannot access their profiles because the login system seems to be broken. Once users enter their UCAS credentials, the hub page simply won’t load.


@ucas_online, please get your sysadmin to renew your SSL certificate so the site will work again!

@ucas_online the hub/login on your website has been down since yesterday. Tried on multiple devices and browsers. No notices from you on the web or Twitter so I’m drawing it to your attention.

According to some users, the UCAS website hub has been inaccessible all weekend. Interestingly, the UCAS status page indicates that the website is working without any problems.


It’s been down all weekend. Yet the status says running fine. Would just be grateful for something from them. Had a whole bunch of applications I wanted to send off over the weekend.

There is still no official acknowledgment of the issue from the UCAS team. We will update this story as events unfold in the future.

Update 1 (November 28, 2022)

06:22 pm (IST): UCAS support on Twitter has confirmed that the recent issue with their website has now been resolved.

Hi there, Thanks for raising that with us. I’m pleased to say the issue seems to be resolved – please refresh your browser (you may need to clear the cache) and try again – it should work. Sorry for the inconvenience caused. (Source)
