Your SHUcard

Your SHUcard is your University membership and ID card. This covers Hallam Union and the National Union of Students (NUS). 

You need your SHUcard to get in to the libraries, halls of residence and to use many other University services and facilities, including gaining entry into exams.

You should receive your SHUcard when you enrol; however, if for some reason you don't please contact Hallam Help on 0114 225 2222 or

Access control

At some point during the course of your studies you may require a key or an access control card. This could be because you are a research student and need access to a particular laboratory, or you need to replace a key to your accommodation. To request additional access you need to complete an access control application form [SHU70].

What to do if you lose your SHUcard

If your SHUcard was stolen you can order a replacement free-of-charge, but you must report the incident to the police to obtain a crime reference number.

Lost or damaged cards can be replaced for a fee of £10.

Cards will be ready to collect the following working day.
