Deakin Card

Your Deakin Card is used for printing, access and identification while on campus.

Deakin Card

Your Deakin Card is your student ID. You will need it for:

  • printing on campus
  • borrowing from the library
  • accessing buildings after hours
  • exams as your ID
  • graduation.

You can get your Deakin Card any time after you have enrolled but it's a good idea to arrange it as early as possible.

When your new card has been issued, you will need to wait up to 24 hours before being able to print.
