Charges may apply for some services.


If you live or work near Middlesex University's Hendon Campus, you may use the services available to all students on campus. Please note that you will need your student ID card to access the campus.

If you did not receive an ID card following enrolment, please create a ticket to request one, remembering to state clearly that you are a distance learner and wish to apply for a student ID card. You should also attach a digital, passport style photo of yourself.

The card will be posted to you, so please ensure that you include your preferred postal address in the ticket.


Please note that we are unable to advise whether changing your mode of study to Distance Learning is possible or not. To discuss this possibility, please submit an enquiry via the request changes to studies form.
