ID card collection is compulsory and you should make it a priority when you arrive because it finalises your enrolment at King's College London.
For students arriving in September, you can collect your ID card at any point during Welcome Week, just book a slot on the Welcome to King's app at a time that suits you. You will be issued with a wristband when you first arrive on campus that will allow you to access King's buildings throughout your first week with us, so don't worry if you can't collect your ID card on the first day.
For students arriving during the rest of the year, please visit the New Students webpages for information on how to collect your ID card.
Important to know:
- Collecting your ID card should take no longer than 10 minutes.
- You must bring a form of photo ID (passport or driving licence) to collect your ID card.
- International Students must bring their passport and visa documentation.
Once you've collected your card: Please remember to stay safe online and not post pictures of your ID card on social media channels. Your card contains unique information that identifies you, so it's best not to share these details on the internet.
