Student ID Cards
Whilst you are a student, you should always have your ID card when on campus.
What is my card for?
- It is proof that you are a student;
- It is your HIVE library card;
- It gives you 24/7 access to the Peirson Building: if this does not work automatically, please take your ID card to Security, located at main reception on the St John’s Campus, to be updated.
- It can have credit added to enable you to print & photocopy on campus and at the HIVE;
- It can give you access to your accommodation;
- It can give you access to course specific buildings at the University, such as the Art House or Jenny Lind building. Speak with Security if your access is not working.
Collecting your ID card (new students)
Once you have completed online registration via SOLE, you can collect your ID card from the firstpoint counter. You will be given a specific time and date to collect your card, please do not attempt to collect before this time, as your card will be pre-printed for this arrangement.
We advise you to upload your photo via SOLE as part of your registration process, but if this is not possible, we can take one on the day. You will be required to show valid photo ID such as a driving licence or passport; if you do not have one of these documents, we can accept your birth certificate accompanied by a bank card in your name.
