Student ID Cards

Your Anglia Ruskin University ID card is printed and produced by the iCentre.

If you are studying at one of our main Campuses, you will be required to tap the card against the card reader on entry to each timetabled event on your timetable.

We operate a no tap: no attendance policy, therefore it is extremely important that you correctly tap into each timetabled class. You can register your attendance up to 10 minutes before and up to 10 minutes after the start time of a class. If you tap outside of this 20 minute window your attendance will not be recorded.

You will also need your card to access certain areas of the University, for examinations and if you wish to personally collect your marked assignments. When you visit the iCentre or any other University service you will usually be asked to produce your ID card.

Your ID card will also provide access to the University Library.

How do I get my card?

The first thing you need to do is register on e:Vision - see our registration page for more information. To ensure your card is ready upon your arrival please send us a recent photo. A selfie is fine. The photo needs to show your head and shoulders clearly, you can take this picture on your own camera or mobile. Please refrain from adding filters that cover or alter your face.

Please email your photo to and include the following information in the subject heading:

Campus of study, full name (as registered with us) and student number (this is a 7 digit number)

Replacement Ruskin ID Cards

If your card has expired and you are still studying with us we will exchange it free of charge when you return your old card. If you lose your ID card you will need to buy a replacement. There is a 10.00 replacement fee. We only take cash at the iCentre but you can also buy a replacement online.

Visit the Anglia Ruskin Online Store to purchase a new card. Once ordered please come to the iCentre with a valid form of ID to pick up your new card.

If you would like to pay by cash at the iCentre please bring a valid form of ID with you.

Distance Learners

We dont automatically send cards to our distance learners. If you would like a card please email us and we will send it to your contact address.
