CAMPUS CARDS

Your campus card grants you access to University facilities such as the library and sports facilities and will entitle you to student discounts in a wide variety of shops, bars, cinemas and online. You will be provided with a campus card upon starting your programme of study, if you require a replacement card, please follow the steps below.

Campus Card Collection for New Students

New students who are joining the University at the start of semester 1 or 2 will be issued with a campus card during registration after the completion of all necessary formalities (academic, financial and visa registration if applicable). Please keep your campus card safe as it should last for the duration of your programme of study.

Students who are joining the University at another time during the year can collect their Campus Card from the Student Services Enquiry Team desk on level 2 of the Fraser Building between 9:00 (9:30 on Wednesdays) and 17:00 Monday to Friday.

Exceptions

  • Students studying at the Dumfries Campus will be able to collect their campus cards at Dumfries.
  • Pre-Sessional English students will be advised by the English for Academic Study unit regarding collection arrangements.
  • Students studying via online programmes will have their campus cards posted to them directly.

Damaged, Expired or Stolen Campus Cards

Damaged Campus Cards
If your campus card is damaged or is no longer working through wear and tear please bring it to the Student Services Enquiry Team desk on level 2 of the Fraser Building and we will replace it for free.

Expired Campus Cards
Your campus card has an expiry date on it, normally a few weeks after the official end of your programme of study. After this date you will no longer be able to use your campus card to access the Library and other facilities as a student.

If your campus card has expired but you are a continuing student or you have been given an extension, we can replace your card for free. Students can apply for a free replacement card online or visit the Student Services Enquiry Team desk on level 2 of the Fraser Building. We will only be able to issue a replacement for an expired card if your school or college have updated your record accordingly.

Stolen Campus Cards
If your campus card has been stolen then we can issue a replacement for free providing it has been reported as stolen, not lost, and you have a copy of your crime reference number or police report. Students can apply for a free replacement card online or visit the Student Services Enquiry Team desk on level 2 of the Fraser Building.


Identification for Examinations

Please note the following University regulation on identification for examinations.

Every candidate shall display for the invigilator's inspection a valid Student ID card or other form of photographic identification.

While a campus card is preferable in this instance, it is not essential if you have another form of photographic identification, for example, a drivers licence or passport. Students looking to purchase a replacement campus card on the day of their exam may cause themselves additional stress as there can be a long wait in the queue at the Student Services Enquiry Team during examination diets.
