Your ID card will provide access to the Library and other buildings and facilities for those students on campus. Please be advised that the guidance below is subject to change so please check this page and your email regularly for the latest information.
You must be either fully or temporary enrolled before attempting to collect your ID card. Guidance on how you can find out your enrolment status can be found in our FAQ titled 'How can I check my enrolment status?'.
When you visit us you will need to tell us your student ID number. This is a 9 digit number which, for new students starting in 2023/24, starts with '23' or '24' e.g., '231234567'.
In order to collect your card you will need to have completed Pre-Enrolment and be Fully or Temporary Enrolled and be able to show/tell us your student ID number.
Please do not attempt to collect your ID card if you have not been granted full or temporary enrolment as we will not be able to print it for you. Please bring confirmation of your enrolment with you.
Guidance on when and where to collect your student ID card has been separated by programme level:
You are not eligible to collect your ID Card as your enrolment is not complete. All enrolments are taking place online only so please wait for us to review the documents that you have uploaded and we will email you with an update on your enrolment status. Staff on campus (e.g. the Student Enquiry Centre) cannot complete your enrolment and you should only attempt to collect your ID card once you have received an email to confirm your full or temporary enrolment. The email informs you where and when you can collect your card.
Please be advised that the team who can support your enrolment are only available to speak to via email (email@example.com) and you should email us if you have any questions about your enrolment status. It may take up to 5 working days for us to review your documents once you have completed Pre-Enrolment.
From Monday 25 September, if you have full or temporary enrolment you will be able to collect your ID card from the Student Enquiry Centre (SEC). No appointment is necessary but please check the SEC website for opening hours. SEC is located in Ground Floor, iQ East Court, Mile End Campus (building 64 on the map).
Please note that for security reasons we do not post ID cards.
