BCIT Student ID Cards and COVID-19

The BCIT Card Office is currently closed due to COVID-19 restrictions and we are unable to process in person requests.  Students can submit their pictures on-line via the submission form and they will be processed once operations resume.  We are looking at safety protocols and standards to get students their ID cards and will advise those who submit their pictures online when and how they can get their card.  For special circumstances please contact with your specific request.

The BCIT ID card is an identification card for current students and staff members.

It allows you to access many services at BCIT, including:

  • the Library
  • U-Pass / Compass Card
  • AudioVisual services (student equipment bookings)
  • Recreation and Athletics in the Student Activity Centre
  • Printing
