University ID cards and door entry - update

More locations added where you can update your card.

What is happening?

As advised previously, we are currently replacing a number of our door entry readers in all University buildings. As a result, the electronic information stored on your University of Aberdeen ID card will need to be updated.

This will affect those who have access to specific restricted areas or require to be onsite out of hours. If you do not update your ID card then you may be unable to pass through secure doors once the new door entry readers have been installed.

What should you do?

You can now update your card in the following locations:

  • IT Service Desks in the Edward Wright Building or Polwarth Building

  • Sir Duncan Rice Library

Temporary locations are also available at:

  • Polwarth Reception (will be moved to Suttie Reception on Monday 20 June)

  • MacRobert Reception

  • IMS Reception

  • Hub ground floor

This process is quick and easy - just hold your card over the card reader, wait a few seconds for a short beep and then remove your card again. Once complete, you will not need to have it updated again
