Replacement cards

Lost your library card? Here's what to do

The process for getting a Student Card/Library Card has changed

The requirement for a JP (Justice of the Peace) certification for a Library Card application has been temporarily waived. However, all other relevant documents, signatures and payments are still required.

The Student Centre will now be posting all cards. Cards will not be available for pickup.
