Card help

The University of Edinburgh Card provides a form of identification, access to controlled entry buildings and library access for staff, students and Visitors. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we are currently unable to be on site; so production of student cards has ceased. We are currently considering the most effective and safe ways of producing and delivering your new/replacement student card and we will update our website when we have further details.
