Your campus card

Your campus card gives you access to many facilities at the University.

You can use it to:

  • Visit the Library (to borrow books, pay for photocopying, etc)
  • Access IT facilities
  • Access other buildings on campus

Your campus card is also your Students’ Union identity card, enabling you to attend Students’ Union events and get student discounts in participating stores or venues.

It’s important to look after your campus card as there may be a charge for lost, damaged or stolen cards. The card should be returned to the Library if you leave the University permanently.

Ensure you complete Online Registration and upload your photo by 15 September to get your campus card pre-printed and ready for collection. If you miss the deadline you will need to have your photo taken and your campus card printed once you have registered and there may be queues.

Collect your campus card

GP registration

As part of University registration, you’ll also get the opportunity to register online with Guildowns Group Practice – the on-campus NHS GP.
