This page applies to all students of the University of Sydney.
Your student card contains personal information you provide to the University when you become a student. The purposes of a student card include, verifying you as a student, providing proof of your Opal concession entitlement, allowing you access to secure areas on campus, verifying your access to secure areas of the University, and facilitating borrowing from the University libraries. By using your student card for these purposes, information will be generated and collected by the University, including records of the items you borrow from the University libraries and the secure areas you access.
If you use your student card to access a SydPay account, see the SydPay privacy information.
The supply of information by you is voluntary. If you do not supply the information requested, this may prevent your enrolment as a student of the University and/or access to secure areas of the University.
The personal information you provide to the University and information regarding the items you borrow from the University Libraries and your access to secure areas of the University may be accessed for University purposes by staff members on a need-to-know basis, including: staff within the Student Centre who are authorised to issue cards and who have access to the Transact card management system where your information is stored; staff members who work in the University Libraries; and, relevant staff within Central Operations Services, the faculty, school or organisational unit that you work within, and the Safety, Health and Wellbeing unit.
You may apply at any time to see what personal information about you is held by the University and to check its accuracy. If any of the information is inaccurate, out-of-date or incorrect, you may apply to have the information corrected.
