Student ID cards

To keep our College safe, all staff, students and visitors are required to wear ID badges at all times when they are on site. You will be stopped by College staff if your ID is not visible, and will need to purchase a replacement from Student Services if you lose it.

Your ID card also functions as a library card for access to the Learning Resource Centres, as well as for entry to exams.
