Step 3: ID cards

Get Your Student ID Card

Your Student ID card has many uses including electronic building swipe access, proof of identity at UNSW examinations and library borrowing.

ID Cards for students commencing their studies in Term 1, 2020 will be available from 13 January 2020.

During the Term 1 Getting Started period (3 February to 14 February) 
Dedicated ID Card services will be available as part of the Getting Started Support Service in The Nucleus: Student Hub.

Outside the Getting Started Period 
You can still visit The Nucleus: Student Hub for support.

1. Complete your online acceptance and enrol into your courses

Please note: You will need to wait 24 hours after enrolling into classes before requesting your ID Card.

2. Prepare your identification documents 

When presenting in person to request your ID card you will need to bring with you one or more forms of valid identification documentation.

Your identity documentation will be used to verify your identity and support any necessary changes to your personal details on your UNSW record.

For more information about identification documentation, please visit the Student ID Card information webpage.

3. Collect your Arc sticker

Once you've collected your ID card, visit Arc Reception (D17) to get your membership sticker on the back and open up your student experience.
