ID Cards

Each University of Notre Dame Australia student, whether domestic, international, study abroad, part-time or full-time, should have a University Student ID Card. You are eligible for a Student ID Card if you have a current UNDA enrolment and have been issued with a student ID number. It is not compulsory to have a Student ID Card, however, please discuss your options with staff from Student Administration.

University ID cards will allow you to:

  • prove your identity as a student on campus and at examinations
  • store monetary values for printing and photocopying in the Library (all monetary values on ID cards are non-refundable)
  • borrow books from University libraries
  • obtain student transport concession in conjunction with relevant State requirements (NSW only)

How to obtain an ID card

There is no charge for your initial ID card, however, if you lose your ID card and require a replacement, you will have to pay $20.00 via the Notre Dame Payment Gateway.

If you have any questions, please email

For students who have had their ID card stolen, if you have reported it to the authorities, a police report number will suffice in order to receive a replacement card with no charge. If you have any further questions regarding the above, please contact:
