Full-time students can apply for a Transport for London (TfL) 18+ Student Oyster photocard, which provides a 30% discount on travel in London.

You can apply online via the dedicated TfL site and will need a digital photograph and a credit/debit card. You can check your eligibility on the TfL 18+ Student Oyster webpages, which also include important information about how and when applications will be validated.

Important to know:

  • Most part-time students and students on a break/interruption of study are not eligible for the 18+ Student Oyster photocard. Please refer to the more detailed guidance on the TfL 18+ Student Oyster webpages.

  • When you make your application, please ensure that you select King’s College London as the institution: King’s College London – James Clerk Maxwell Building (institution code 0403).
  • The King's Student Funding Office confirms whether applicants are registered as full-time for TfL.
  • Applications cannot be approved until the first day of term, so the Student Funding Office will begin approving application from then onwards.
