I need to provide proof of my student status, how do I get it?
If you are asked to provide an official document to any person, authority or organisation proving that you are a registered student at UCL, the quickest way to obtain it is to visit in person the UCL Student Centre. This is located on the ground floor of the Chadwick Building, near the Front Lodge as you enter the main UCL gates on Gower Street.
Alternatively, you can send an email request to firstname.lastname@example.org, quoting your UCL student number, name, date of birth and address you want the status letter sent to.
I require additional support because of a disability, how do I go about getting this?
If you have either a seen or unseen disability, you should visit the Student Disability Services Office for guidance and assistance.
If you want to make an appointment to speak to an advisor, please ring them on 020 7679 0100 and a suitable appointment time will be arranged for between 10am and 1pm. Alternatively, if you have a brief query, you can visit them during one of their drop-in sessions which are held 2 – 4pm, Monday to Friday. Their office is located in G16, South Wing, Wilkins Building.
Information on the services and support they offer can be found on their website at: http://www.ucl.ac.uk/disability
What do I do if I lose my ID card?
You will need to go to the Security Office in the Andrew Huxley Building which is open from 9am – 4.45pm, Monday to Friday.
The first issue of your ID card is free but if a card is lost or stolen during its period of validity, the next two issues will be free. However, a £15 administration fee will be charged on any subsequent occasion where a replacement is requested for reasons other than card expiry, changes to the information on the card or card failure.
In such circumstances a voucher must be bought from the UCL Shop and then taken to the card issue office, where a new card will be issued.
