Campus Card terms and conditions


The University aims to provide a safe and secure environment, where affiliated parties can be easily and quickly identified. The Campus Card has been designed to provide a single, centrally managed, multi-purpose identity (ID) card that serves as both a form of University identification and credential for interaction with the University.

Terms and conditions

  1. Campus Cards must only be issued once a valid affiliation has been confirmed via enrolment or Human Resources.
  2. The front of the Campus Card must contain the card holders name (preferred first name if one is present), photograph, affiliation with the University and ID number.
  3. The photograph provided for a Campus Card must not be more than two years old at the time of printing.

If you have provided your own photograph you grant the University a non-exclusive, royalty free licence to use your photograph on your Campus Card and on University systems or directories.
  5. Staff members: The University of Auckland has a public facing Staff Directory which comprises all permanent and fixed term academic staff and a subset of professional permanent and fixed term staff.
