New starters

Your University card identifies you as being a student or staff member at the University. Cards are issued in line with University policy.

Cards for students are handed out at the start of your first term. Cards for staff are usually printed on your first day.

If you are not on the staff payroll, or you are not a student on an accredited course, then you will not be issued with a card automatically. However, you may still be eligible.

Lost or stolen cards

From the beginning of the Spring Term 2019 there will be a £5 fee to replace lost and stolen University ID cards for both Staff & Students

If you lose your card, or your card is stolen, you should report this immediately and obtain a new card.

Report a lost or stolen card to the University House reception desk. Alternatively, use the online form.

Replacement ID cards are issued at University House Reception (payment by card only) between 10am and 3pm Monday to Friday and at Senate House Student Reception (payment by cash and card), between 8am and 8pm Monday to Friday and 10am to 6pm at the weekends.
