Important things to know about your ID card
  • If you lose your card, it is important to report this immediately so that it can be deactivated. You can do this with Student Services or Security.

  • Your new card will give you automatic access to all King’s libraries and most computer rooms. 

  • If you're staying in a King's residence and access that residence with your ID, this will automatically transfer to the new card.

  • If you have previously been given access to restricted areas, such as labs or offices that you access by swiping your card, then you will need to return to the security office in that building to have this encoded on to the new card. In most cases, you will not need clearance forms to do so.

Accessing campus while you're waiting for your replacement ID card
If you have teaching or an appointment on campus and don’t have an up-to-date student ID card, you will need to bring other proof of ID and proof of your enrolment with you to show campus security. If you've ordered a replacement ID card, you could show your order confirmation.
Please do try and arrange a replacement ID card as soon as possible to make it easier for you to access campus buildings.
