University ID card (UCard)

Your UCard is your personal University card. You need a UCard to access campus facilities.

Upload a photo for your UCard

You must confirm your registration details and upload your photo to be able to collect your UCard.

You will be able to upload your photo as soon as you have confirmed your registration details. To save on waiting times, upload your photo before arrival.

Collect your UCard

Collect your UCard from the Card Services office at Royal Fort Lodge, BS8 1UH on Tyndall Avenue (opposite Senate House).

The office is open Monday to Friday from 8 am to 4 pm.

Activate your UCard

Once you have collected your UCard, you will need to swipe it on a wall-mounted card reader (or library entrance card reader) for 10 to 15 seconds to activate it and complete registration.

It may take up to 2 hours before our systems update and you are fully registered.

UCard data use

We store data from your UCard which shows when you use your UCard to enter a University building.

We use this data so ensure support and services are available. This use of your data is part of section 10 of the Student Agreement.
