UNSW ID Cards

If you are a new UNSW employee or a contractor, you can find all the information here on how to organise or replace your UNSW ID card. If you are a student looking to organise your UNSW ID card, please visit The Nucleus: Student Hub

If you are a new UNSW employee, you can obtain your staff ID card from Security & Traffic Management. Your first card will be complimentary, but if lost or stolen, a replacement card will incur a $25 fee. 

If you are a new starter, who is not a direct UNSW employee, you will need pre-approval to obtain a card. You can obtain a ID card, at a cost of $25, from Security & Traffic Management. 

If you are a trade contractor, you will need to complete your Contractor Induction Training before applying for your ID card. At the end, there will be a Contractor ID Card Application form. Send the form to your UNSW project manager. Once your form is approved, bring this to Security and Traffic Management to obtain your ID card. A $25 fee applies. 

If your ID card is expiring or has expired, you can replace this at no cost if you bring it in. To organise a replacement card, visit from Security & Traffic Management. 

If you lose your ID card, or suspect it has been stolen, you can cancel the card by contacting Security immediately on 9385 6000 or emailing ID.cards@unsw.edu.au.
