Student ID cards

New students

Upload your ID card photo before you arrive at the University so IT Services have time to produce your ID card. To prevent delays, make sure your photo meets the Government's passport photo guidelines.

  1. Log in to the student ID card portal with your University username and password.
  2. Click Choose File and upload your photo. If you have any issues, email Campus Card Services.
  3. You'll receive an email saying whether your photo has been accepted or rejected. If it's rejected, you'll need to retake it, upload it again and it might not be ready for the start of your course.

After you've arrived at the University, pick up your ID card from your Halls of Residence. If you aren't staying in Halls, you can pick it up from the Main Library.
