Student cards

Applying for a replacement card

You need to keep your student card with you at all times on campus. Your student card’s internal mechanism can be damaged if the card is cracked, bent or exposed to heat, so be sure to take care of it throughout your studies.

If your card is lost, stolen or damaged, you can apply for a replacement online or in person at the Student Centre.

You’ll need to pay a $25 administrative fee and bring photo identification to collect your new student card from the Student Centre. Please note, the Student Centre only takes payment by credit or debit card.

If you require a new student card due to a name change or your card becomes unreadable because of wear and tear, you are not required to pay for the replacement. In this instance, come to the Student Centre to apply for your card. Do not use the online portal.

If you lose your Concession Opal card, contact Opal Customer Care on 13 67 25 (13 OPAL) to report it immediately and order a replacement.

Your existing SydPay account will be linked to your new card when it’s issued, so you don’t need to transfer funds.

Temporary library cards

A temporary library card allows you to access library facilities in situations where your student card has been deactivated. You can apply for a temporary library card if you are:

  • a postgraduate student who has suspended
  • a student intending to do honours or study for a postgraduate degree
  • an HDR student under examination.

Find out how to apply for a temporary library card on the Library website.
