Identification (ID) cards display your student ID number and username. They are also used to give you building access, load printing funds, benefit from student discounts at various retail services across Dunedin and enable you to access off-campus student services such as the UniPol gym.

You can obtain your ID card until you have completed your course declaration in your eVision portal and waited at least 24 hours after this process. Students should bring at least one of the following to the ID Card Office as a form of identification:

  • The previous year's ID card (if studying at the University of Otago already)
  • Legally valid photo identification (e.g. passport, driver licence, firearms licence, or 18+ card).

Distance learning and part-time students may also need to obtain an ID card for examination purposes (or for other urposes specified in individual courses).

Malfunctioning ID cards can be replaced at the ID Card Office for free, but any cards that are lost, stolen, or damaged will incur a fee of $25 (plus GST) to replace.

The ID Card Office is on the ground floor, Information Services Building, on the corner of Cumberland and Albany Streets, Dunedin. During various times of the year, the ID Card Office operates from the Uniprint shop, also on the ground floor, Information Services Building, on restricted hours. The ID Cards page has current opening hours listed, or call first:
