Getting your ID card

There are two ways to get or request a student ID card: in person, or by email. There is no charge for the first card, however, getting a replacement card may have a cost. Please note that you can only start your ID request two weeks before the start of your programme

1. In person

Visit Student Central (Te Pae Kōrero) on campus where our friendly advisors will take your photo. We suggest getting in early to sort your ID, to avoid any long waiting periods or queues at the start of the semester.

For locations and hours, please visit our Student Central page.

You may be asked to verify that you’ve paid your fees or have made arrangements to pay your fees, e.g. via student loan, and show some form of personal identification in order to get a student ID card.

2. Submit an online form

For distance learning students only, Please fill in the Request a Student ID Card form and we’ll process your student ID card as quickly as possible.
