Student ID card

Your student ID card is your passport to our libraries, computers and travel concessions. Your card is current while you are enrolled at the University of Newcastle.

If you are a student and are applying for your first ever Student ID Card, upload your photo here. You will receive notification advising you when and where to collect your ID card. You will be required to provide your student number and photo identification on collection.

Alternatively, you can obtain your Student ID Card from Student Central any time between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday. Sydney students can collect from the Sydney Campus.

Lost or stolen cards

If your Student ID Card has been lost or stolen, you can pay for a replacement card online and collect your replacement Student ID Card from your nearest Student Central location.

Note: that your previous photo will be used when printing your replacement card. Port Macquarie students will receive an email when their replacement Student ID Card is ready for collection.

Travel concessions

You may also be entitled to a travel concession if you're a full time, on-campus, student.
