About University of the Free State (UFS) Self Service


The University of the Free State’s Oracle, or self-service, is an online portal that allows students to register and interact with other students in various activities throughout their time at the university.

Students are able to access UFS self service, UFS blackboard (eLearn), timetables, Ufs4life emails, library, exam results, and protection services through the University of the Free State student site.

Important logins, such as that of the UFS oracle, are stored in the student portal (UFS PeopleSoft).

UFS Oracle

The UFS self service has the UFS oracle PeopleSoft user interface, which requires your user ID and password to access, just like other student portal interfaces like certain universities’ ITS Web Enabler Interface. It enables the student access to:

  • academic records
  • financial records
  • proof of registration
  • internet billing (applies to registered students only)
  • internet records and billing
  • timetables

UFS Password Change

Every 90 days, UFS students must change their passwords. When your password is about to expire, you will receive an email notification.
