A Staff UCard is issued to all registered, salaried members of staff. The name used on your card will be your "known as" name plus your family name, as recorded in your personal details held by the University.
If you have a logon user ID you can upload your photo for your UCard: see the Photo Upload panel to the left. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request the card to be printed. You can collect the UCard yourself 24 hours after upload at Royal Fort Lodge. The photo needs 24 hours to appear on the UCard system, so please make sure you wait until the day after your upload to collect or request the card.
Alternatively you will be able to have your photograph taken at Royal Fort Lodge, once you have started in your new post, and collect your UCard immediately. You will need to bring some identification, your UoB contract/letter of employment and some photographic ID such a passport or driver's licence.
If you need access to a building(s) which are outside your department/faculty/division, your head of department should complete a request to extend building access form (Word doc. 41KB) and email to the relevant UCard Administrator(s) for them to approve access privileges. Full details on building access control can be found on the Security Services web pages.
A member of staff can only hold one Staff UCard. If you are a member of staff and also studying at the University, you should use your staff UCard for borrowing library books, access to buildings, sports membership etc. If you need a card to identify your student status for other purposes, you can obtain a 'registered student' UCard at Card Services. This card can only be used to identify the card holder as a student of the University.
Upon request Card Services can provide an "academic identity card". The card is intended for use outside of the University, where the card-holder's academic title or department need to be displayed. This type of card is inactive however, and cannot be used within the University.
A fee of £10 applies to the issue of this card.
