Please read this important information about KPU's Personal Information Collection Guidelines.

How to Get a KPU Card

  1. Apply online using the KPU Card Submission Form for students and employees to submit their photo online. You will be able to submit your personal photo to the library online through the form.
  2. Wait for an email from the Library that states your card is ready to pick up. KPU Cards must be picked up in person.
  3. Visit a Service Desk at the campus library you selected anytime during Library open hours. Don't forget to bring government issued photo ID.

Currently registered students are eligible to submit for their KPU Card 1 month before their classes begin. Requests submitted early will not be processed until 1 month before classes begin.

Original government issued photo identification is required to pick up your KPU Card; electronic versions are not accepted. If you are not a Canadian Citizen, you must present your passport in order to pick up your KPU Card. Cards must be picked up in person at a KPU Library.

New students are eligible to get a KPU Card 1month before their class start date.

Your first card is issued free of charge.

Already have a card? No need to get a new one, we'll keep your card active so long as you are registered or employed at KPU.
