SydPay is a convenient tap-and-go payment system for use across all of our campuses. All you need is your student card.


SydPay is a campus payment account included with your UniKey and student card. It can be used for print and copy services across libraries, IT labs and learning hubs on the Camperdown/Darlington Campus, and for laundry services in Queen Mary and Abercrombie student accommodation. Other campuses and services will follow.

Guests of the University Library, such as alumni, community members or students from other institutions, can also use SydPay by purchasing a guest card from a SydPay kiosk.

How to access SydPay

  • If you first enrolled in 2016 or 2017, your student card is already SydPay ready.
  • If you enrolled before 2016, and have not yet encoded your student card for SydPay, activate your student card with SydPay by visiting one of the following locations:
    • Carslaw Learning Hub (Carslaw Building)
    • Fisher Library (IT Support, Information Desk, Level 3)
    • Student Centre (Level 3, Jane Foss Russell Building)
    • Teaching and Learning Service Desk (entry level, Abercrombie Building).
    • Once you’ve activated your SydPay account, you will have print access the following day. Laundry access is immediate.
    • When you have loaded funds onto your SydPay account online or at a SydPay kiosk, your card is ready to use.

SydPay Guest

If you don’t have a student card, you can purchase a SydPay Guest card for $2 from a self-service SydPay kiosk, located in Fisher Library, Nursing Library, SciTech Library and the Student Centre.

When you purchase a guest card, $2 will be deducted. A minimum $5 top up will leave $3 for printing and copying.

If you don’t use your account for 12 months, your funds will expire.
