If you have lost your student ID card:

  1. Check your student email account as the ID Card Office will email you if your card has been handed in. If there is no email you should still contact the Office to check if your card is there:
    Tel: +64 3 479 5330
    Email idcard.officer@otago.ac.nz
  2. Ask staff near the area where you think you lost it. Many study spaces have a lost property bin.
  3. Check at the OUSA office beside Union Lawn. Most lost property found on campus is held there.

If you have no luck finding your card, you must immediately report it missing to Campus Watch in the Proctor's Office:

Tel:+64 3 479 5000 (24 hours/7 days).

If you have lost your staff ID card or if it has stopped working, please contact the ID Card Office as soon as possible.

Lost ID cards will remain active until a replacement card is issued and the original card's chip is deactivated (if no replacement card is issued, then the original card will stay active).

Replacement ID cards

Replacement ID cards can be obtained from the ID Card Office in the Information Services Building.

Contact details for the ID Card Office
