Your attendance is recorded on our Student Attendance & Engagement Monitoring (SAEM) system by tapping your student ID card against the card reader at your teaching event. The proximity readers are normally located at the entrance to rooms either just inside or just outside the door. Some of our larger teaching rooms have multiple readers, at each door.
When you tap your card the reader will flash green and beep to acknowledge that your card has been registered. You only need to tap this once on entering the room. If you are in the same teaching room for consecutive classes you will need to register your attendance at each class.
If you tap the reader and it flashes red this means that there is a problem with your card. Please visit the Campus Life Desk on Level 1 of George Moore Building or GCU London Student Office to have your card checked. Please check if you have had your student ID card replaced that you are using the most recent student card.
Your attendance will only be recorded no earlier than 15 minutes before the start of your timetabled event and no later than 15 minutes after the start of the timetabled event. Any swipes outside of this 25 minute window will not be recorded against your attendance. Please note that it is at the discretion of each lecturer whether they allow late arrivals to join the class.
Your student ID card is for your use only. Do not let anyone else use it. Giving your student ID card to someone else, or using someone else’s card, is a serious offence under the Code of Student Conduct.
