Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, King’s College London, in-line with guidance from the UK Government, are taking preventative measures to protect the King's Community. 

In light of this, you’ll now need to verify your ID online until normal services at King’s resume. We also advise that you regularly view our Getting Started webpages for the latest updates.

How can I verify my ID online?

Once you've completed the online enrolment task which was sent to your King's email, and uploaded a photograph, you’ll need to send scans of documentation to Registry Services. This can also be in a JPEG format.

What documentation will I need to send?

If you are a UK/EU/EEA/Swiss passport holder, you’ll need to send one of the following original photo documents listed below:

  • Passport; or
  • Photo driving license; or
  • National Identity card.


If you are a Non UK/EU/EEA/Swiss Passport holders, you’ll need to provide the following:

    • A copy of passport that you use to gain entry into the UK, which will contain any visa information that we require. Please ensure any visa within your passport has the entry stamp on it.
    • Any separate Biometric card issued by the Home Office
    • You must send evidence of your visa application, if you are currently applying for a Visa from inside the UK, (please bear in mind that if you applied for your visa outside of the UK, you’ll need to wait for the visa to be granted before you travel)

What happens after my ID has been verified?

Once we’ve verify your ID online, your enrolment will be complete. You’ll then be able to access all your course materials online.


If you are a Non UK/EU/EEA/Swiss Passport holder, you’ll be asked to attend an in-person re-registration appointment to verify your physical documents, once our services on campus have resumed.  You will be contacted at a later stage with more details on when your appointment will be.

Until your documents have been verified, your enrolment will be considered as provisional.


When can I collect my ID Card?

Our ID card printing service has been suspended until further notice.  We will let you know once the service has resumed, and when you are able to collect your ID card on campus.

When can I collect my Biometric Residence Permit?

Your Biometric Residence Permits (BRP) will not be available to collect, until this has been sent to us by the Home Office. We’ll let you know once this is ready to collect.
