  • travel concessions (if you're eligible)
  • borrowing library books
  • printing and photocopying
  • student discounts
  • after-hours access to buildings (with relevant faculty staff approval).

For more information on Student Cards, and to find out how to get your card, please visit the Card Centre website.

Building Access

Your supervisor will be able to provide you with a list of buildings/rooms you will need access to.

Most buildings have a swipe card system to secure the building after hours. A number of doors are also alarmed either full time or after hours (these doors are clearly labelled). After-hours access is usually through a restricted number of doors using a swipe card.

Access to Pharmacy and Bank Building and Badham Building

Keys for labs and equipment rooms can be obtained from the Faculty Administration Office. These can either be ordered and kept for the duration of study or signed out to enable the opening of rooms for specific requirements.

Swipe card access needs to be requested by your supervisor for your card and then processed by Security Services. To request access your supervisor must complete the Building Access Authorisation Form and send it to .

After access has been requested, you need to take your student card to Security Services (Services Building G12) to get the card activated. It is usually necessary to wait 1 day for processing of the request.

If you are granted permission to have after-hours access to the Pharmacy and Bank Building you need to understand the safety procedures. When entering the building after hours, you need to sign in the after-hours book located at the front of the Pharmacy Building corridor, in the first cabinet (with the fire hose and Fire Indicator Panel).


Security Services arranges parking, access to buildings, and deal with instances of theft, lost property and emergencies.

EMERGENCIES ONLY phone Security Services on 9351 3333
