Student ID cards

As a student you are required to have an ECU student ID card. Other than identifying you as a student, your card can be used to borrow books from the library, borrow multimedia equipment and add funds for printing and laminating.

Where to get a student ID card?

To get a student ID card, visit one of our Multimedia Resources counters.

  • Joondalup - eLab Building 31
  • Mount Lawley - eLab Building 10
  • South West (Bunbury) - eLab Building 3

For counter service times, see our Support and advice page.

Your photograph will be taken and your card will be produced while you wait.

How to get a student ID card off-campus

Download and complete the ‘Application for external student ID card’ form.
Send this, along with a passport style photo of yourself, to the address listed on the form, either via post or email.

Not an access card

Please note that your student ID card is not an access card. It will not give you entry to areas outside of normal operating hours.

Access cards are available through the Campus Support Office. For more information, see the Student access cards page.

Transperth SmartRider

ECU ID cards are printed on the back of SmartRider cards to enable convenient access to the WA public transport system. Students who are eligible for tertiary concessions can obtain the concession fare by filling out the “Transperth consent Declaration” form.

If you already have a Transperth SmartRider card, you can have this function transferred onto the back of your student ID card by contacting Transperth directly on 13 62 13.

For more information and to check your eligibility for a SmartRider card, please visit the Transperth Tertiary SmartRider website.

Lost student ID cards

If your student ID card has a SmartRider card on the back, report it to Transperth as lost so your remaining balance is kept safe. Then visit one of our Multimedia Resources counters to obtain a new card.

Replacement cards cost $10 unless:

  • the card has been stolen and you can provide a police report number;
  • you've changed your name; or
  • you've changed to a new course that requires a different format of card.

Once you have the new card contact Transperth to transfer the old balance to it.
