UK Data Service / Economic and Social Data Service access

Uk Data Service

Due to authentication problems, we are currently having problems logging in to UK Data Service and the Economic and Social Data Service. Whilst we are resolving this, ESDS have sent the following instructions for access:

  • Apply for an individual username and password here
  • UCS isn’t listed, so on the ‘Organisation or Academic Institution’ drop down box, choose ‘Institution not listed’
  • You will have to use your UCS email address – it won’t accept anything that doesn’t end in ‘’.
