# Get your Student ID card

Your student ID card is very important because:

  • It gives you access to university buildings and accommodation.
  • You need it to register your attendance at classes.
  • It gives you access to printing.
  • You can use it for a range of student discounts.

To get your student ID card, you need to visit our team on campus. You do not need to book an appointment, you can just turn up once you have successfully completed your enrolment.

You should collect your ID card before teaching begins on Monday, 8 January 2024.


Your student loan will only be released to you once your student ID card has been issued.

# How do I get my Student ID card

# 1. Complete enrolment

You need to complete enrolment (opens new window) before you can apply for a Student ID card. If you already have your University email and password, it means you have completed online enrolment.

# 2. Check that you have a UK address registered

When you enrolled, you submitted one or more address where we could contact you. The Term Time or Correspondence address should be a UK address. You can check that you have a UK term-time address listed or add one on SOLAR (opens new window).

# 3. Bring you photo ID

Bring a form of photo identification such as your passport for the receptionist to verify your identity.
