As well as identifying you as a student at the University, your student card allows you to access campus facilities, borrow from the library, print and photocopy, and gives you access to a wide range of travel and student discounts.
Your student card identifies you as a student at the University, and is valid for the duration of your studies. It includes your photograph, name and Student ID number.
You need to keep your student card with you at all times on campus. It will allow you to:
You’ll apply for your student card when you enrol in your course through Sydney Student.
As the last step of enrolment, you’ll be asked to upload a passport-style photo. You’ll need to make sure that your photo meets the guidelines outlined in the photo portal or it will not be approved.
If you didn't upload a photo during your enrolment, you can log in to Sydney Student at a later time to complete this step (go to 'My studies', then 'Enrolment' and select 'Upload photo').
Once we’ve approved your photo we’ll email you with details on collecting your card. It can take up to four weeks for your card to be ready for collection.
To collect your card, you’ll need to bring your Australian passport or Australian driver's license as proof of identification. If you are unable to provide either, you will need to bring other accepted proof of identity documents.
You can collect your card at the below times.
From 30 July to 24 August:
10am to 2pm, Monday to Friday

If you have previously studied at the University and are unable to upload a photo in the photo portal, you'll need to come in to the Student Centre for further assistance.
If you’re only enrolled at the Summer or Winter School (and not also enrolled as a student in Semester 1 or 2), you are not eligible for a student card or a Concession Opal card.
However, you can still get a library borrower's card by visiting the Student Centre with your Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) and photo identification such as a passport or driver’s licence.
If you're not able to provide your Australian passport or Australian driver's license or NSW photo card, you will need to bring with you original proof of identity documents. These will need to equal 100 points and include at least one primary document.
