  • replacement cards which have been lost/stolen/broken
  • ID cards for students who register late on their course
  • replacement cards for students who are granted an extension by their School.

Cost of replacement ID cards

There is a charge for replacing lost ID cards.   If you purchase your replacement card online via the estore the charge is £7.   If you purchase your card in person at the Student Centre the charge is £10, which can only be paid using cash.

If you have been a victim of crime and have had your ID card stolen, a replacement will be provided free of charge on production of a police crime reference number.
