You can:

  • upload a digital photograph within online registration.  
  • or email a digital photograph to registration@gcu.ac.uk To give us time to process your photograph, it must reach us at least seven days before you collect your card
  • or you can call at the Campus Life Desk on level 1 of the George Moore building. Please bring your joining instruction letter or email that has your student ID at the top.

What kind of photograph should I email you?

  • full colour
  • only you in the photograph
  • full face only - no sunglasses, headphones, earphones or hats
  • plain background
  • free of headwear, unless normally worn for religious reasons
  • size: 160 pixel (high) x 120 pixel (wide) - portrait style
  • JPG file saved as your Student ID number.jpg (your Student ID is in the top left corner of your joining instruction).

If you are not sure if your photograph meets the criteria for size or format, upload or email it anyway and we will contact you if there's a problem.  Please see below for some examples.

If you upload or email your photograph, it may take a few days for us to process it, especially at busy times.
