Student ID Cards

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

As part of your Online Registration you need to upload a high quality photo of yourself for your student ID card, and you should do this as soon as you can to avoid any delays when you arrive.

This photo will appear on your ID card and on your student record for the duration of your course.

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 you'll need to upload a photo of yourself.

You'll need to login using your full username to be able to upload your photo. If you haven't done this before, please watch this video.

The image you upload should:

  • Be a recent colour photo, of you alone
  • Head and shoulders only
  • Against a pale background with good contrast
  • Full face with eyes open
  • Facing front
  • No glasses unless you normally wear them
  • No hats or headwear (unless for religious or medical reasons)
  • Photos should be .png .jpg .jpeg .tiff or .heif format and less than 4GB in size

You should not:

  • Upload a photo with Instagram, Snapchat filters etc.
  • Upload inappropriate or obscene images
  • Upload an image of someone or something else, other than yourself

Photos should be similar in nature to a passport photo and will remain on your ID card for the duration of your course. If you submit an photo that does not meet the guidelines your card will be witheld and you will be required to pay for a replacement (see below). Please follow the guidelines to ensure your image is in the correct format.

Why do I need my card?

You need your Student ID Card to register your attendance. 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 and accommodation.

Replacement Student ID Card

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. You can buy your card online or pay by card at the iCentre.

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. Please bring a valid form of ID with you.
