Tip 1
: ID

Your student ID card is your official proof that you are a student of University of Worcester. You will need it for exams, trips, sports events and for visits to firstpoint.

tip-02Tip 2: Print

If you need to print on campus, you can scan your ID card at the campus or library computers. To add printing credit to your card, use the kiosks next to the printers or top-up online via MyDay.

tip-03Tip 3: Library

Your student card is also your library card, when you want to borrow books at the Hive. Students can borrow 3 short loan books (with orange labels), 12 high demand booked (with blue labels) and 23 other items.

tip-04Tip 4: Accommodation

If you live in University accommodation, your ID card is often used to get access to your building. Most buildings will have activation points at the front entrance, but you can always visit Security at the St John’s Campus and they can update your access.

If your lectures are based in a building which has restricted access, such as the Art House or Jenny Lind, your card can be enabled to give you specific access, as is appropriate. You can also have 24-hour access to the Peirson Building added to your card, so you’ll be able to do some late night studying!
