What if I lose my Student ID Card?

It is essential that you report a lost or stolen student card immediately to the Student Registry Helpdesk

Our service is currently working remotely off-campus.

To request a replacement card, please click on the Online ID Card Reprint Form and we will post the card to your address.


A replacement card can be issued to you at a cost of €20. 

If your ID card has been stolen, you must scan and email a copy of the Garda crime report to askregistry@nuigalway.ie 

The report must contain the investigating Garda name, Garda Pulse Incident Number and be signed by the Superintendent in charge).

Students should be aware that the false reporting of a crime is a serious offence

Failure to notify the University places you at risk of serious allegations of collusion in the fraudulent use of your NUIG student card.
