Campus cards

Campus CardsYour campus card is an important document! Every student is issued with a ‘smart’ campus card. Please keep your card with you at all times.

Your campus card will allow you to electronically register your attendance at lectures, seminars and workshops, borrow books from the library, access printing and photocopying services as well as Solent Sport; the card will also be able to be used at catering outlets.

Students in the School of Art Design and Fashion need to use their cards to access the Below Bar campus.

Readers have been fitted in all teaching spaces, including the learning resource centres. At the beginning of every teaching session, hold your card next to the reader until you get the green light to record your attendance.

If you forget your card, your attendance can’t be electronically recorded. Further information is also available on the attendance monitoring pages.

New students

Campus Card in ActionAs a new student you will be issued with a card after you have completed our enrolment process; the card is intended to last for the duration of your course.

New students who are fully enrolled but have not yet obtained their card will still be able to remove books from the library for the first two weeks of teaching.

Continuing students

If you are a continuing student and return to studies without your card then you should apply for a replacement as soon as possible. 

Without a campus card you will not be able to take books out of the library and you will not be able to register your presence in class which will impact on your record of attendance.


Do you have a campus card? If not, you will need to order one or have it replaced soon to ensure you can get access to controlled areas and use any of the multifunctional print devices (MFD) on the campus.

You are now able get a campus card from the Estates and Facilities helpdesk in CC003 at any time from 11am to 4.30pm, Monday to Friday.

Please also bring a form of ID with you. Your photograph will be taken when you collect your card, but if you prefer you can send a head and shoulders style photograph to the email address below. 

From 1 August 2017 a charge of £10 will be applied for the replacement of lost campus cards.
