Student ID and Resources

Student ID and resources information for new students at University of Greenwich. Discover how your student ID card is used for university resources.

To access services such as your library and computing accounts, you will need to have a student ID card. You can collect this once you have completed registration. You will also need to present your passport, your original certificates with your qualifications and proof of payment or means to pay.

The student ID card carries a passport-type photo (you should have uploaded one as part of the online registration process). It also carries the Students' Union and National Union of Students (NUS) logos, which give you access to a wide range of services and activities, including voting in student elections.

A separate NUS Extra card is also available. This works in conjunction with your resource card to provide over 800 student discounts on goods and services, including travel, meals, fitness clubs and visitor attractions. This card also incorporates the International Student Identity Card, the international form of student ID, giving you access to over 35,000 discounts in 116 countries worldwide.

Using libraries and labs

Learning Services operates the library and student computing facilities at each of the campuses. The facilities are available for more than 100 hours per week during term-time, including late opening until midnight 7 days a week.

A wide range of electronic information services are provided, many available for use off-campus, and some 600,000 volumes and more than 1000 PCs are available for on-campus use. The libraries also run an inter-campus loan service, so you can order a book or journal from another campus.

Learning Services also provides laptop drop-in zones, photocopying and printing facilities, and self-service machines for the issue and return of books. Our staff in both the computer labs and libraries will do all they can to assist users who need help to use the facilities.

To use these services, you will need a student ID card (see above).
