Your student card helps you access a number of services such as library and printing services and student discounts both on and off campus.

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.

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.

If you are studying via distance or at the Port Macquarie campus, please complete a Student ID Card Mail Request form (PDF, 281KB) to obtain your card.

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