How to apply for your first University Card

Once you are confirmed as a student or a member of staff and have an email on file, you will be emailed with a link to the application website. This email will include your login and password. If you do not receive this email please contact the University Card team for assistance. 

This process is only applicable if you have never before applied for a University Card. If you have previously held a University card and need a replacement, you will need to click onto the Replacement Cards link instead.

To apply for your first card you will need...

1) A digital passport style photograph of yourself (in .jpg format).

2) The username and password from within the email sent to you. 

3) To visit this site:


If you are a new student and you have not uploaded your photo prior to registration then photograph stations are provided at registration. However, this will result in a delay in the receipt of your card.
