All students at GCU are issued with a Student ID Card.  This card has various uses, including:

  • Identifying yourself as a student at GCU
  • Your Library Card
  • Recording your attendance at classes
  • Recording your engagement at some services
  • Entrance to certain secure areas of the campus

 

How do I get my Student ID card?

You must register online and upload a suitable photograph before we can issue your student card.  If you are joining GCU in Trimester A, we will post your student card to the term time address that you provide during online registration.  We will start sending cards out in September.

We would usually issue cards within two weeks of your registration however due to the current coronavirus pandemic please be patient as there will likely be delays.  If you have completed your registration in advance and have not received your card by your course start date email loans.grants@gcu.ac.uk including your student ID.

Lost Student ID Cards

Coronavirus update: As our campuses are closed we are unable to check for lost cards or replace lost or stolen cards.  

If you have lost your student ID card, contact the Campus Life desk in the George Moore building, Level 1, or the Library desk to see if your card has been handed in. 

The fee for a replacement card is £15 which you can pay online through the University’s online store.  You’ll need your student ID number or your username to place your order, and you can select to collect your card or have it posted out to your registered term time address. 

If you have selected to collect your card you can pick this up from the Campus Life desk in the George Moore building, Level 1. You will need to show your receipt when collecting your card.  If you are a GCU London student you can collect from our London campus

If you find your original card after we have issued a new one, you will not be able to use it in the university and you will not receive a refund.

Stolen Student ID Cards

Coronavirus update: As our campuses are closed we are unable to replace stolen cards. 

If your card has been stolen, you need to bring the crime reference number issued by the police to the Campus Life desk in the George Moore building, Level 1. We will issue a new card free of charge.

You will still have to pay the lost card fee if you only have a pink loss report slip from the police.
