ID cards

As a student of City, University of London student you are required to carry your student ID card with you at all times whilst on University premises. The card provides swipe access to many areas of the University and is proof of your status as a registered student at this institution.

The majority of ID cards are issued during the student registration process at the beginning of the academic year. Subsequent replacement or reissue of cards is conducted in the Student Centre, where the following can be obtained:

  • replacement cards which have been lost/stolen/broken
  • ID cards for students who register late on their course
  • replacement cards for students who are granted an extension by their School.

As both stages of the registration process for the 2020/1 academic year will take place online, we are currently finalising the process for producing and distributing ID cards to our students. Further details will follow shortly.

Cost of replacement ID cards

There is a charge for replacing lost ID cards.

If you purchase your replacement card online via the estore the charge is £7.

If you purchase your card in person at the Student Centre the charge is £10, which can only be paid using cash.

If you have been a victim of crime and have had your ID card stolen, a replacement will be provided free of charge on production of a police crime reference number.
