Collecting your student ID card for the first time

Prior to collecting your student ID card on campus, you must ensure that you've completed online enrolment and uploaded a photo for your ID. If you started prior to January 2022, but are coming onto campus for the first time, you should have already completed these steps when you first began your programme.

Important to know:

  • ID cards can be collected from Student Services at Bush House, 4th Floor, SE Wing on Strand Campus.  You can drop in to collect your card at any time, but you may have to wait to be seen. If you want to secure a specific time and date, please book a slot, using our booking system. 
  • There are different arrangements for ID collection depending on whether you are a Home student, or an International student; all arrangements are outlined below – please refer to the information most relevant to you.
