Why do you need your Student ID Card?

  • You need your student ID card for printing and photocopying, parking in the student carpark, issuing Library books, and accessing areas around campus
  • It is also the key to free bus travel to and from WITT and around the māunga. Some places such as the cinema give a student discount so it is always a good idea to have your ID card with you.

Important tips for getting your Student ID Card

  • You can collect your ID card from Te Whare Mātauranga (L Block) (please allow two working days to process your card)
  • If you can’t email us a photo, don’t worry, you will be able to get your ID card up to two weeks before your course starts by popping into Te Whare Mātauranga between 10.00 – 12.00, Monday – Friday and we can take a photo for you
  • Please note, you need to be fully enrolled before we can process an ID card for you
  • You will also need to show your vaccine pass before the ID card will be given to you
