Each new student is issued a student identity card, the HKUST Card, on registration at the University.

The card is for

  • Proof of identity
  • Access to campus facilities/ premises
  • Recording and presentation of special training/ attendance data
  • e-purse payments at some campus facilities

After receiving your card, you should

  • Immediately change the Personal Identification Number (PIN)
  • Verify your data on the card

Your HKUST Card is the property of the University. It is not transferable and should be kept carefully. Falsification or misuse of the card may constitute an offence, which may lead to suspension of privileges and disciplinary action.

If you run into any problems related to your card, send an email to
