What you need to know

Your student card is your offical RMIT student ID,  and it's important that you keep it safe (but if you lose it, it's not the end of the world - check out the Lost or stolen student card section on this page to find out more).  There are a few things you need to know:

  • When you're on campus, you must have your RMIT student card with you at all times. 
  • You need to take your card to all exams and formal assessments.
  • If your card is damaged, lost or stolen, order a replacement card online as soon as possible. Until you do, any misuse of your card will be your responsibility.
  • If you're no longer enrolled at RMIT, your student card is invalid.
  • If you cancel your enrolment, you must return your card to RMIT Connect.
  • Your student card is the property of RMIT University.


How to use your student card on campus

With your student card, you can:


Lost or stolen cards? Here's what you need to do

  1. Report the loss or theft to Campus Safety and Security on the relevant campus as a matter of urgency. RMIT Security will immediately deactivate the card. Until you report your card to Security and order a replacement card, any misuse of your card will remain your responsibility.
  2. Order a replacement card immediately – see below for details.

How to order your replacement card

You must be enrolled in an RMIT program to be eligible for a replacement card.

To order a replacement card, go to Replacement Student Card Online Payment and follow the instructions. The replacement fee is $25.

Once your payment has been received, RMIT Connect will cancel your current card and print a new student card using your existing student photo. Your student card will be posted to your Australian mailing address in 8–10 days. 

If your card was stolen, you may be eligible for a partial refund of the replacement fee. Further details will be provided after you have made the online payment.
