University of Westminster ID Card


Every student receives a University ID card when they first enrol. The card will remain valid until you complete your studies and you need to make sure you carry it with you at all times around the University. Do not let anyone else use your card.

You will need your ID card to:

  • access University buildings
  • borrow library books
  • use the University’s printing and photocopying facilities
  • vote in elections for the University’s Students’ Union
  • join the University’s sports and recreation facilities

Lost or stolen ID cards

If you lose your ID card, there is a £10 fee for a replacement card. Get in touch with your Faculty Registry Office to find out what the procedure is for obtaining a new card.

If your ID card has been stolen, and you can provide a crime reference number issued by the police, a new card will be issued free of charge.

If you experience any problems with your ID card, speak to your Faculty Registry Office.

From October 2015 you will be required to use your student ID cards to swipe in to your timetabled classes. Each room will have a reader, or a number of readers, and touching your card to the reader will record your attendance.
