Business cards

Full and part-time on-course matriculated students may order University of Oxford branded business cards, where the requirements for Leave to Supplicate for your current programme of study have not yet been satisfied. If you are uncertain whether you are eligible to order business cards please contact the Reprographics Office.

Ordering your cards

You can place an order for your business cards with the Print Studio.

You may order business cards containing just the University of Oxford brand, with your department or faculty logo printed alongside the University of Oxford brand, or with just your college crest.

'Student' is the recognised term for those registered for a degree or other qualification of the University, printed within the Course of Study field, for example, DPhil Student in .... The term 'Candidate' may be requested in exceptional circumstances (when, for example, for use by doctoral researchers in an international setting). Please state on the order form, in the Comments field, the circumstances for requesting the term 'Candidate'.

Alternative language and double side printing

If you require your details to be written in an alternative language to English on either the front or on the reverse of the business card, indicate this when completing the online form and email the alternative language text in a Word document to the Print Studio.

You may also choose to have your details printed in the same language on both sides of the card.

Cost and payment

Cards are available in a minimum quantity of 100. The cost is £36 inc VAT per 100 cards. Discounts are available on large orders; contact the Print Studio to discuss. An email requesting payment and providing a job number will be sent to you. Please quote the job number as a reference when making a payment online by debit or credit card at the University online shop. Cash payment is not accepted.


Your printed business cards can be delivered to your College Lodge, to your department, or you can collect them from the Print Studio. Please allow at least five working days from receiving the confirmation of your order. Delivery to any other address is not possible.

Business cards for student clubs / societies

The use of the University brand by student clubs / societies requires permission from the Proctors. Permission will only be given for clubs / societies that have been registered with the Proctors for at least two complete terms and only continues while the club continues to re-register with the Proctors each year. The Print Studio will check with the Proctors that your club meets the above criteria.
