Student ID card

Your student ID card is your key to the University's services and facilities. Presentation of a student ID card allows you to:

  • Sit examinations
  • Borrow from the Library
  • Use University photocopiers/printers (once loaded with credit)
  • Access computer labs after hours
  • Receive up to a 10% discount on general titles at Ballarat Books (15 Armstrong Street North, Ballarat)
  • Attend discount yoga and Zumba classes at SMB gym

New cards

All students are provided with an initial student ID card at no cost. You can order your first ID card online using FedUni's CaptureMe Portal.

Once you have uploaded your photo, your ID card will be ready to collect from your nominated campus location from 2pm on the following business day.  See below for more information about ID card collection points:

  • Berwick - Students should use the ‘online’ drop down option and your ID card will be posted to you in the mail.
  • Gippsland – Arts Hub
  • Off-campus/online - ID cards will be posted to students directly
  • Partner students – your Student ID card will be sent directly to the relevant partner for distribution
  • Horsham – Main reception
  • Mt Helen – Student Administration (T building opposite the Library)
  • SMB – Student Administration (D Building, Lydiard St)

Alternatively, you can visit the Student Administration or Student Hub offices at your campus to have your photo taken and ID card printed on the spot.

Replacement cards

If your card is lost or damaged, you can get a replacement card at a cost of $10.00. Replacement cards can be obtained from Student Administration/Arts Hub or campus libraries.

You will need to fill out a Student ID Card Replacement form (pdf, 298kb). These forms are also available at the Student Administration offices at each campus.

If you locate your original student ID card at a later date, please destroy it.
