Student ID Cards

Accepted Students


Staff member and student with ID card on screen.New Students:

After you’ve registered for your courses, you must get a Student ID Card through Student Central.

You will be asked to show valid photo ID (e.g. driver’s license, passport).  Then your photo will be taken and a card produced. Your first card is FREE; there's a $25.00 fee for a replacement card.    To save time, you can pre-order your ID card - see below for details.




The card is useful for identification purposes; it gives you access to gym facilities and Library resources; it's also needed to obtain and use the Transit U-Pass.

Returning Students:  Continue to use your same student card.  Your first card is FREE; there's a $25.00 fee for a replacement card.


Pre-ordering your ID Card

Just email your photo to Student Central in advance - see deadlines below - and we’ll have your Student ID Card ready and waiting for pick up! 

What to do:

  • From your UW Webmail account, email a JPG image of yourself to studentcentral@uwinnipeg.ca.
  • The photo must show your shoulders and entire head. Photos are subject to approval by Student Central.
  • Include in the email your full name and student number, as well as which Orientation date you have registered for. 

Tips for a great photo:

  • Avoid a busy background; stand against a blank wall.
  • Ask someone to take the photo for you. No selfies.
  • Use a camera, not a cell phone, for better quality resolution.
