If this isn’t suitable for some individuals we may be able to arrange an on-site collection.


The health and wellbeing of our students and staff is of the highest priority, and the University is continuing to follow all advice given by the Government. This information is subject to change depending on government guidance.


Due to current Covid-19 measures and changes to our Service Desk, campus cards will only be issued to those staff and students working or studying on campus.

Please log a ticket for a campus card and upload your 'passport-style' photo to us. You can log a ticket by emailing the IT Service Desk or by visiting our Self Service Portal and choosing 'Log a Ticket'. Don't forget to attach your photo!
Cards can take 1-2 working days to print, depending on demand. We are available for card collections from Monday to Friday, between 11-12.
Cards can be collected from the IT Service Point in the  ITCS Building. Access is via the walkway, opposite the Chemistry building.

Collection can ONLY  be made following a ticket being logged with the IT Service Desk. You will receive an automated email confirmation to your UEA email address to acknowledge receipt of your request. When your card is available to collect, we will email you and let you know.

If you arrive at the IT Service Point without prior confirmation that your card is available, we cannot guarantee you will be able to collect your card. This is due to limited staff and resource on campus, the time needed to print and allocate your card, and Covid-19 distancing measures.


Yes, when collecting a campus card, you will be asked to confirm some security information and will need to show some photo identification, such as your passport or driving licence.
