SOAS University of London


ID cards

Once you have enrolled you will be able to collect your SOAS ID card. This is an important part of SOAS security provision and we ask that you keep this safe, and carry it with you at all times whilst on campus, to help us provide you with a safe and secure environment in which to work and study. Your SOAS identity card serves multiple purposes. In addition to proving your identity, it controls your access to SOAS buildings and allows entry to the library.

On the front of each ID card is the cardholder's name, photograph, SOAS student number and your card expiry date.

Where do I collect my SOAS ID card?

New students – Once you have received your confirmation of enrolment email, you can collect your ID card during welcome week at the Paul Webley Wing

Continuing Students - If you have not been on campus previously and need a Student ID card, you can email to request your Student ID Card. The team will let you know once your card is printed and ready to collect from the Brunei Gallery. You will need to show one form of personal identification and your confirmation of enrolment email.

If you believe your name or course details are incorrect, please use the Student Information Desk (SID) to raise a query. Choose ‘Change to Personal Details’ from the menu and pick ‘other’ as the request type’ in the form. Your query will then be looked into by the relevant team.
