Warwick ID Card Collection

Your Warwick ID Card will be issued on arrival at Warwick. If you are starting your studies remotely, you will not receive your Warwick ID Card until you travel to Warwick. When and where you will be able to collect your Warwick ID Card depends on your course start date and whether you are living on or off campus. Please check which of the scenarios below applies to your circumstances.

When collecting your card, you will be required to show proof of your identity (e.g. your passport, driving licence, national identity card, etc) including your full name and photograph, for verification purposes.

I am studying a blended pre-sessional english course:

  • If you are arriving for the 10 week blended course and you are going to be living in on-campus accommodation, as long as you have uploaded a photo in advance, we will pair your Warwick ID Card up with your accommodation key so that you receive them at the same time.
  • If you are arriving for the 6 week blended course, you will collect your ID card from your department on your first day of in-person studies. Your ID card will not be available prior to that time. Please make sure to upload your photo as soon as possible when asked to do so in order for your card to be produced.
  • Students studying online only will not receive an ID card for the pre-sessional course.

My course starts or started before 31 July 2021 and I am arriving onto campus for the first time since my course started:

Please visit the Student Services Team in Senate House who will be able to issue your ID card. Please make sure that you have uploaded a photo in advance via photos.warwick.ac.uk, and make sure to take ID (e.g driving license or passport) with you when collecting your Warwick student ID card. Student Services are currently asking students to book a time slot to attend in order to minimise queuing.

I am going to be living on-campus:

If you are going to be living in on-campus accommodation, as long as you have uploaded a photo in advance, we will pair your Warwick ID Card up with your accommodation key so that you receive them at the same time. Please follow the arrival instructions provided by Warwick Accommodation.

If for any reason you do not receive your Warwick ID Card when you collect your key, please go to Student Services, Senate House. Ensure you have uploaded a photo before visiting. You do NOT need to book an appointment to attend.

I am going to be living off-campus:

If you are going to be living off-campus (even if this is in University-managed accommodation) you will be able to collect your ID card in one of two ways:

  • If you are studying one of the following courses, your ID card will be collected by your department and issued to you at your first face to face teaching session: **COURSES TO BE UPDATED IN DUE COURSE FOR STUDENTS STARTING IN 21/22**
    • PGCE students
    • MBChB students (except those living on campus)
    • Executive MBA students
    • CLL students on the following courses:
      • Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood (D-X330)
      • Bachelor of Arts in Person-centred Counselling and the Psycotherapeutic Relationship (D-X1GA)
      • Foundation Degree in Early Childhood (X329)
      • Social Studies (D-Y201) - Part time Social Studies students will be able to collect cards from the CLL reception.
      • MSc Psychotherapy and Counselling (P-C8B9)
  • Otherwise, you will collect your ID card separately. Location to be confirmed.

If you have previously studied at Warwick or have extended your studies, please bring and continue to use your old ID card initially for building access, etc. This will continue to work with all of the relevant access for your new course. We kindly ask that you then request your new Warwick ID Card from Student Services a few weeks into term, when they will be quieter, to help us to maintain social distancing at the start of term.

My course is not delivered at the main Warwick campus/I am distance learning:

As standard, ID cards are not issued for students not attending the main Warwick campus. If you need to prove student status, you can request a Certificate of Status.

If you are a DLMBA student, your ID card will be issued to you during your Warwick Week.

If you are a WBS student studying at The Shard, your ID card will be issued during your course induction, at The Shard.
