University Card

The University Card Office is run by UIS on behalf of the University and Colleges. 

The University Card looks like a credit card containing the cardholder’s name and photo, college scarf (students, Fellows and College members only), date of birth (undergraduates only) plus a barcode that is primarily used for University Library borrowing.

  • Access - most University buildings are now using the University Card as a 'key' to gain entry. Your Card will need to be activated for this service and access to specific doors will need to be granted before you can gain entry.
  • Identification - the card identifies you as a University employee or student, for students this is particularly important around exam time where you will need your card to gain entrance into your examinations.
  • Library Services - all personal University Cards carry a barcode on the back, this barcode can be used by the Library to turn your card into a Library Card.
  • Additional Privileges - the University Card is recognised by many businesses in Cambridge and around the world, production of the Card may entitle you to discounts.
