Once you have completed your enrolment, log in to Capture Me to upload a passport-style photo of yourself. After your photo has been verified, you will receive a notification that your student identification (ID) card is available.
Virtual ID card
You can access your virtual ID card in the Swinburne app after your photo as been verified. Your virtual ID card can be used to verify your Swinburne student status and to borrow books from the library.
Physical ID card
You will still require your physical ID card to access certain buildings on campus at Swinburne (e.g. the LateLab after hours). If you would like a physical ID card, you can visit Library and studentHQ to have it printed on the spot. Alternatively, you can contact us and we can arrange for your card to posted out.
Tip: Your photo should have a plain background and with your head and shoulders clearly visible. If the photo you provide is not suitable (e.g. too small, taken in profile or partial profile or with an inappropriate background, pose or accessories), you will be requested to complete your photo again.
Lost your student ID card? Library and studentHQ can replace stolen or lost student cards. A replacement fee may apply.
Head coverings in photos
You can wear a head covering in your student ID photo for religious reasons, but we need to see clearly both edges of your face and from the bottom of your chin to the top of your forehead.
Contact Library and studentHQ if you have questions or concerns about our requirements. We use the Australian Government passport photo guidelines for ID card photos.
