ID Cards & Door Access

All University of Suffolk Staff and Students get issued an ID Card when they first start. The card is used for a number of functions, including:

  • Accessing controlled doors on campus
  • Loaning books and resources from the Library
  • Identification when sitting exams
  • Use the Konica MFDs/Printers across the Ipswich Campus
  • Exiting the car park via the barrier
  • Identification for Clinical Placements (Health Staff/Students Only)

For security reasons you must keep your ID Card on you at all times and must present it to members of staff or security if requested to. If you have forgotten your ID Card you must report to Reception, where you can sign in and use a temporary student card for the day. Please note you will not be able to sign in to lectures with a temporary card, please visit Reception or the Infozone who can sign you in.

Your ID Card remains the property of IT Services, University of Suffolk and any abuse of the card may result in confiscation.
