Student ID and Access Cards

Students require a current UTAS ID card to verify their identity for enrolment, examination and security purposes and to utilise Library and printing services. UTAS will provide a Student ID card to each student free of charge each academic year. There is a $10 charge to replace lost or damaged cards. 

In addition to your Student ID card, electronic access cards are available for issue and can allow access to various buildings on campus. For further information on electronic access cards, you can find out more or apply for a card at Campus Services.

For information about privacy provisions and cultural considerations, see Declaration Information below.

In most cases your card can be produced when you have a working username and password, or after the Student Centre processes your form in the case of special programs. To be classified as a full-time student, you need to complete your enrolment for both semesters 1 and 2 with a minimum of 37.5 points in each.

Where and when to get your 2015 ID card

New and Continuing Students

ID cards are produced in the Student Centre in Hobart and Launceston throughout the year. If you have an existing ID card, then the same photo will be used on any subsequent cards printed.

Please bring some photo identification (e.g., driver's licence, last year's card) and your student identification number (as shown on your letter of offer) when you come to get your card.
