Ordering a new ID card

You will need to order your ID Card before you arrive at the University, as you will need it to access most of the facilities and buildings on campus.

Ordering your first student ID card

To order your first ID card, you must have created your university username and password.

You will be asked to log in using your university login details, and you will need to upload a suitable digital passport-style photograph.

It is important to order your ID Card before you start your course, as you will need it to access many of the facilities and buildings on campus.

Your ID card will be ready to collect within 4 working days.

If you apply for your ID Card in September or October, please collect your ID Card from your faculty Student Office. Outside of this period you can collect your ID Card from the Student Services Centre in Building 37. You will need to bring some photo ID with you when you collect your card.
