Learn all about Student ID cards, from submitting a photo to what to do if it is lost or you have forgotten your PIN.

Student ID Card – Photograph Requirements

Once your enrolment is complete, we will need a photograph of you to produce your student ID Card.

Photograph requirements are:

  • A clear photo of you and only you. A selfie is sufficient.
  • Your face is centred, is from the shoulders up, is a full face view
    (no hat, hoodies etc) and has a clear and blank background.
  • Submitted images can be in most standard format i.e jpeg, png etc.

Once you have the digital photo Hamilton students email it to and Tauranga student email it to with your full name and Student ID number.

Keep your contact details up-to-date so we can keep in touch. You can do this easily through MyWaikato, by selecting your name in the top right-hand corner and choosing Edit Details.

Some of your details can only be changed by request - follow the onscreen prompts to make changes.

Our Student Centre Team can also help you update your contact details and answer any questions you may have.  You can contact them by selecting the Log Enquiry button, or you can call them on 0800 WAIKATO (0800 924 528) or +64 7 856 2889 from overseas. Remember to have your Student ID number handy.

Forgotten PIN

If you have forgotten your pin, you can request the PIN to be resent to your UoW student email by phoning the Service Desk on (07)838 4008 or log a Service Request with Kuhukuhu.

After Hours Labs / Buildings Access

All Student ID Cards automatically allow access to the Hamilton Student Centre and Tauranga Afterhours Computer Labs; WMS Students also have MSB Level 0 Lab access.  Please make sure you know your pin number for access, this would have been emailed to your UoW student email.  To access a door - wave your card in front of the reader, press your 4 digit pin number and then the green tick.

If you require access to another lab/area please go to your Department/Faculty Administrator and they will request additional approved access to be added to your card on your behalf, via Kuhukuhu.
