Staff ID cards

Your NUcard is your staff ID card while at UON. This card gives you access to the library and if you apply for approval, is used as your electronic access card to restricted rooms and spaces.

All staff, including conjoint staff, need to get an ID card and carry it with you when on campus or at a UON facility. You can carry your card in your bag or wallet or if you need it frequently you can request a lanyard when your card is created.
