Afraid not, this feature was removed in the past year or so. There was a comment somewhere in a similar thread explaining why but can't see it at the moment

We don't keep a public directory of users any more as there are simply too many, it's a big performance drain. Searching for particular users is also not possible with the search technology we have on the site at the moment.

You can get to a member's profile if you know their exact username though, using the somewhat lesser known profile URL https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/member.php?username=, e.g. https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/mem...p?username=Dez

You can also "ghetto search" a user by @mentioning them in a post. If you click "advanced" and then switch to basic mode (the A/A button) it'll display the user ID.
