Your University card
The University Card is issued to you by your college (or department if you have no college association) on arrival in Oxford once your University registration is complete. University Cards have a maximum validity of four years. The expiry date will be set to the length of your course of study.
The University Card can be used:
- to access facilities and services such as libraries, computing services and the Language Teaching Centre
- as a payment card within your college or department
- as a form of identity whenever you are on college or University premises.
Please look after this card carefully as you will be charged a fee for a replacement. If you need to renew your University Card, you must contact your College or Department administrator who will authorise the changes by notifying the University Card Office. To find out more, please visit the University card website.
