ID Cards & Your Rights
Cardiff University ID Card
Information for Students
The Cardiff University ID Card is a multi-purpose card which you will need throughout your time at Cardiff. All staff and students are required to carry the card when on University premises and to produce it in a situation where it is necessary to check identity. It is also your library card, your NUS card where applicable and for many people it is an access control card. Although there is no initial charge for this card, we do levy a charge (currently £10.00) for the replacement of lost cards.
For new students, information about collecting this card can be found in the enrolment guide or by visiting http://www.cardiff.ac.uk/regis/enrolment/index.html
