Student ID cards

Due to COVID-19 restricting our ability to produce and administer student ID cards, processes are different at each campus. Please read below for specific campus information.

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

Ordering your card

If you're a new 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.
