The University of Adelaide issues identification cards as proof of enrolment.

Your card may entitle you to the following:

  • Access to buildings
  • Access to printing and photocopying facilities
  • Borrowing rights in our libraries and affiliated libraries
  • Identification during examinations
  • Travel concessions (full-time students only)
  • Other student discounts

Your first card is provided free-of-charge. You must bring photo identification and have completed your enrolment for the full year, not just the first study period, to collect one. Full-time student cards are revalidated each year. 

You can collect your card from Ask Adelaide, Level 3 Hub Central. If your program is based off-campus and you are unable to visit us, you can request for your card to be posted within Australia.

Expiry date

The expiry date of each card is located below the photo. Complete your full year enrolment before visiting us for a new concession sticker.

You can collect a new sticker from these locations:

  • Ask Adelaide, Level 3 Hub Central, North Terrace campus
  • Student Services Office, Roseworthy campus
  • Waite campus (more information soon)

If you are unable to visit any of our locations, you can request for a sticker to be posted within Australia (students based off-campus only).

Replacement card

Please select carefully as there are no refunds. We are unable to issue a replacement card if you do not have enrolment in the current study period. Once your request has been placed, your old card will be voided. 

If you change your name, change your photograph, damage or lose your card, a replacement can be requested through our online shop.

Travel concessions

If you are a full-time student, your card may entitle you to travel at concessionary fares on public bus, train and tram services in South Australia. You should carry your card with you at all times and you may be asked to show your card by an authorised person when travelling on a bus, train or tram.
