Student ID Card

Collecting your student ID card 

Collecting your student ID card is the final step to enrolling at the University. You’ll need to have enrolled before your student ID card can be printed and issued.  

New students

After you’ve enrolled, your card will be available for collection and scanning from the campus at which you will be studying, within one working day . If you are based at the Sports Park, your ID card can be collected from the Glyntaff Campus.

Scanning your student ID card will release payment of your maintenance loan (if eligible). Please bring proof of identity (Passport, Driving Licence or National Identity card) when collecting your ID card. 

If you have been approved for a maintenance loan by your Student Finance funding provider, you can find all the information about how to receive this from our student loans page. 


    Please follow the new student information above.
