CSU Card introduction

Commencing students will receive their CSU Card soon after accepting their offer of admission.

CSU Cards contain a contact-less mifare microchip and an antenna that enables access to a number of services across CSU. Such services currently include:

  • Identification on CSU campuses including entrance to examinations;
  • Travel concession cards (restrictions apply)
  • Dining Hall meals for on-campus students;
  • Access to buildings, including 24 hour computer labs;
  • Borrowing materials from the library;
  • Payment for photocopying
  • Purchase of goods in most on campus retail food outlets 
  • Purchase of internet quota

Different cardholder categories and card types, mean that not all of the above services are available to all cardholders. The decision to authorise a particular service for a person lays with the provider of the service and the cardholder's supervisor or sponsor.
