Q. Why do I need a student ID card?
Why do I need a student ID card?
Your student ID card is proof of your status as a fully-registered student at the University of Salford.
If you are funded by Student Finance for your course, collecting your ID card enables the University to confirm your attendance with Student Finance and release your tuition fee loan and maintenance loan. Once we have confirmed your attendance it generally takes Student Finance 3-5 working days for your funding to be released.
You can use your ID card to access buildings and facilities on campus such as PC suites and teaching/study areas. Your ID card gives you access to the library and allows you to loan books, journals and other resources. You will also need it as identification when attending exams and when using the free number 50 bus service to Media City UK campus.
