Ordering a new ID card

Your student ID card is important and will be used a lot throughout your student journey. It will be valid for the duration of your studies.

Not only does your ID card identify you as one of our University of Southampton students, but it also provides you with access to many of the facilities and buildings on campus, including the libraries and faculty buildings. You should have your ID card with you when on campus in case you ever need it.

Please ensure you order your ID card online before you arrive. Please note that you will not be able to order your ID card until you have subscribed to your university account and then enrolled.

You will be provided with a digital version of your ID card which can be downloaded to your smartphone through the MySouthampton app once you have fully enrolled for this academic year.

If you have any questions relating to your ID card, please contact studenthub@soton.ac.uk and a member of the Student Hub will assist you. 

How to apply

Log in to our ID card portal using your university username and the password. Make sure you have an appropriate digital passport-style photo ready to upload.

When you apply for your ID card you will be given the option to choose additional services which require payment.

Collecting your card

Your ID card will be posted to your term time address.

Please be advised that we are unable to process ID card orders without a UK address. Please ensure you update your term time address before ordering.
