Student ID cards

We're not able to produce ID cards at this time. If you need proof of your enrolment, please use your Statement of Account.

Your student ID card is used in the library, for printing and photocopying, for building access and as ID during exams.

On-campus students

If you are a new on-campus student you can order your student ID card online the day after you enrol in one or more subjects at La Trobe.

After you place your order, you'll receive a confirmation email to your student email address. You'll receive another email a few days later (this can be up to a week at peak times) to tell you if your submitted photo has been approved or not.

  • If your photo is approved, your ID card will be ready to collect in person at your campus (with a form of government issued photo ID like a passport or Australian drivers licence) after three university working days.
  • If your photo is rejected, you will need to use the link below again and submit a new photo.
