All ECU students are required to have an ECU student ID card, which not only identifies you but gives you access to a range of services that support your study, including:
You can get your student ID card from any of our eLab counters on campus, where your photo will be taken and your card will be produced while you wait.
If you are off-campus you need to complete the application for a student ID card and submit it with a passport sizes photo of yourself as directed on the form.
The ID card is automatically activated for all internal ECU systems however it can take up to an hour for the access card function to work.
Your building and room access is granted based on your course enrollment however if you need access to areas you don't currently have access to you will need to contact the Access Card team to request access.
The SmartRider card may take up to 48 hours to activate so please check at a SmartRider kiosk or TransPerth help desk before using for the first time. If you already have a Transperth SmartRider card you transfer the remaining credit to your student ID card by contacting TransPerth on 13 62 13. For more information or to find out if you are eligible for a student concession please visit the Transperth Tertiary SmartRider website.
If you have lost you student ID card you should contact Security to disable the access then visit one of our eLab 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.
Don't forget to report the loss of the SmartRider to Transperth to keep the remaining balance safe. Once you have the new card contact Transperth to transfer the old balance to it.
If you would like more information or wish to lodge a request or report an incident, please contact the IT Service Desk.
