Questions about UCards?

Why is having a Ucard important?

You may be asked to show your Ucard as it provides proof of identity, contains details of your student status and membership of the Students' Union. It is also your library card and allows you to access most buildings.

What is UCard misuse?

UCard misuse includes:

  • Lending your UCard to anybody else
  • Using a UCard that does not belong to you
  • Attempting to use an expired Ucard to gain access to University buildings and social events
  • Attempting to use an expired Ucard to obtain student discount on local transport services, or other goods and services
What happens if I misuse my UCard?

If you attempt to misuse your Ucard it may be confiscated and you may face disciplinary action.

What do I do if I lose my Ucard?

If you lose your UCard or think that it may have been stolen, you must report the card missing by contacting the Student Services Information Desk (SSiD) in the Union building.
