Collecting Staff ID Card

UNSW issues ID Cards to all Students, Staff and Contractors for the purposes of Identification, Electronic Building Access, Library Borrowing, to name a few of the increasing uses. Take your completed Staff ID Card Order Form (which must be signed by your manager) and proof of identity to FM Assist (located at Level 2 Mathews Building F23) who will issue your Staff ID card.

If you are a staff member at UNSW@Canberra, please refer to the UNSW@ADFA website for information on how to get your Staff ID card.

Collecting Parking Permit or Staff Travel Pass

Parking Permits

The FM Assist has several forms online for you to organise your parking permits. Please ensure you read the Transportation and Parking Handbook prior to parking on campus.  Take your completed form to e-spot who will then issue your parking permit.
