Prior to arrival at College

Getting ready for living at UNE

There are a few things we suggest you organise to make things easier prior to your arrival at College.

1. Parking

Car parks around the Colleges are administered by the University, residents wishing to use these car parks are required to purchase a parking permit on or before the day of their arrival to UNE to avoid fines.

For more information, visit:

or Apply for a Parking Permit Here

2. Student I.D

All Student ID Card applications are made online.

Collecting your Card:

  • Students who would like to collect from their college may do so by allocating their mailing address as c/o (College of residence) but will be required to supply the certified id as is required for mail outs
  • Students who would like to collect their id from security will need to supply a jpeg photo, have a completed enrolment and can show their id in person upon collection
  • If wanting the ID card mailed out, students must supply a jpeg photo, certified ID (if the ID is not certified this will delay processing) and have a completed enrollment.

Your Student ID Card will allow you to:

  • Access to College facilities
  • Photocopying and printing
  • Borrow books from the University's libraries
  • After hours access to computer labs including the IT Building
  • Sit for an examination (photo ID is required when attending examinations)

Before submitting your application, please ensure you have the following:

  • Suitable passport photo image in jpg format (see requirements).
  • If you are collecting your card from the UNE Life Safety, Security & Information Office you will be required to bring your identification document with you.
  • If you would like your card mailed out you will need to upload a certified copy of one of the following:
    • Current Australian Driver’s Licence
    • Valid Passport
    • Proof of Age/Photo Card

If you do not provide a correct photo or identification document with your application your Student ID Card will be delayed.


The UNE SAFE App is one central location for all elements of Safety at UNE. We suggest you DOWNLOAD this (via the Apple store or Google Play) prior to arrival.

It has many useful features such as:

  • UNE Maps
  • AskUNE
  • Safety information on Campus
  • Friend walk
  • Emergency contacts
  • Support Resources at UNE
  • UNE Safety Shuttle location
  • Reporting incidents

4. Facebook Page

The UNE Colleges Support Facebook page is the one stop shop for all our events, information and updates while living in College. This page will keep you informed on everything from: free flu shots, free food events, planned power outages and more.

We also recommend you find and follow your own College's Facebook pages to keep in the loop with those you live with!

Quick links to the main pages here for you:
