Your Study

Your Ara student ID card is your formal identification and access to services on campus.

You can also use your card to claim awesome student discounts on things like tickets, movies, food and clothes at heaps of stores throughout NZ.

You may also want to sign up at Studentcard for additional deals whilst you are studying.

On campus use your Student ID to access:

Getting your ID Card

At our City campus, on your first day, take your student ID number to the security office in the Rakaia Centre and ask for a Student ID card. If you are at Woolston campus, go to the main desk in the Student Services building. At the Timaru campus, you can get your card at Registry in A Block or staff can post it to you.

Staff will verify that you are enrolled, take your photo and provide you with your ID card. If you want access to the 24 hour computing suite at the City campus, you need to ask to get this added.

See Student ID card for more information. 

Lost or stolen cards

If your card is lost or stolen firstly report this to the admissions team at your campus. Your old card will be cancelled and a replacement card issued by Security.

Credit your ID card

You can credit your card to pay for things such as photocopying using the information kiosk computers at your campus.
