Student cards

As well as identifying you as a student at the University, your student card allows you to access campus facilities, borrow from the library, print and photocopy, and gives you access to a wide range of travel and student discounts.    

How to get your student card

COVID-19 update: posting out student cards

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 and Government advice we have limited staff on campus and will not be running face-to-face student card collections until further notice.

After you've submitted a photo through Sydney Student, you will then need to fill out the Request to post student card application form (pdf, 231KB) and send it with a copy of your proof of identity documents to

We will then send your card to the Australian address you’ve nominated in the form. Due to limited staff on campus, you may experience delays.

Submitting your photo

If you didn't submit a photo during enrolment, you'll need to log in to Sydney Student and upload a passport-style photo (go to 'My studies', then 'Enrolment' and select 'Upload photo'). You can do this at any time.

When you upload your photo, you’ll need to make sure that it meets the photo guidelines (pdf, 69KB) or it will not be approved.

If you have any issues with uploading a photo you can contact
