Your first Deakin Card
Your Deakin Card is your student ID card. You can order your Deakin Card as soon as you have accepted your place at Deakin and enrolled. All students require a Deakin Card, even if you are studying online.
You will need your Deakin Card to:
- print on campus
- borrow from the library (on campus or online)
- access buildings after-hours
- confirm your identity at exams.
To order your Deakin Card online simply complete the Deakin Card ID form. You are required to upload a digital, passport-style photo, and your card will take 1-2 weeks to arrive via post.
Alternately, you can obtain a Deakin Card when you visit a campus. This may be more convenient: we’ll take your photo and you will receive your card on the spot.
