Be Smart & save yourself the cost of a replacement Student ID Card

It is important that you do not mutilate, punch holes, or destroy your Student ID card in any way or you may have problems using it with the card readers at the turnstile entrance to the Library and with other card readers across campus. Please note that if you do damage your card you will have to pay a €20 fee to replace it. In order to ensure that your card functions correctly and to avoid the replacement card fee Do protect your card from excessive heat. Do protect your card from becoming demagnetized by avoiding contact with cell phones,  TVs, microwaves, and other portable electronic devices. Don't bend, fold, or otherwise mutilate your card; this means don't carry it in your back pocket. Don't punch holes in your card. Don’t wash your card or write on it.      Further information in relation to your Student ID Card is available at:
