For security purposes, all students are required to wear their ID Card whilst on campus. Your ID Card not only identifies you but also allows you access to University buildings and facilities.
Obtaining your 1st ID Card
You cannot be issued with an ID card until you have completed Stage 1 registration.
Please collect your ID card at your earliest convenience from any of the Ask Herts Hubs
Your ID card will be issued when you collect your Biometric Residence Permit (BRP)
If you do not need a BRP, please just visit a hub.
What to bring with you
ID cards can only be collected in person and you must bring another form of photographic ID (copies on your phone are not accepted) with you (e.g. a passport , full or provisional driving license).
Your ID card is valid for the duration of your programme of study, therefore you will not be issued with a new ID card each year. If you lose your ID card, you will need to get a replacement card.
Using your ID card
After collecting your ID card, you will need to activate it at one of the update points.
If you are a new student, you will need to allow 24 hours after collecting your ID card to be able to use it on the print, copy and scan devices on campus.
You will need your student ID card in the Learning Resources Centres (LRCs) to:
Virtual ID cards
Once you have completed stage 1 Registration, download the Herts Mobile App where you can find link to your virtual ID card.
Please note that when on campus you still must have your physical ID card visible for security reasons and the virtual card only proves you are a student. The virtual ID will allow you access to the LRCs but no other University buildings and facilities. You cannot use your virtual ID card to borrow books or laptops from the LRCs. The virtual ID is not accepted on Uno buses and you must have a physical card to claim student discount.
