drop into any campus. You can get your card straight away at Alice Springs, Casuarina, Darwin Waterfront and Palmerston campuses. Other campuses and centres have a 3-day turnaround. You must present valid photographic ID (Australian Driving Licence or passport).
How much will my student card cost?
You're entitled to one free student card per year. There's a $15 fee to replace a lost card, however if your card is stolen we'll replace it at no cost if you have a police incident number.
Get your textbooks
Head to the CDU bookshop to find out which textbooks you need for your course.
The bookshop publishes the list of prescribed texts about four weeks before the semester starts. Search by unit code to find out what you need.
You can order directly from the CDU bookshop and you can also borrow textbooks from the library if they're available. Check out the library's New Students' Guide if you're unsure how to search for a book on the library website.
Free Microsoft Office suite for students
Did you know that as an enrolled student at CDU you can install up to five copies of the Microsoft Office suite on your personal devices for free?
Create, store and share documents, spreadsheets, presentations and notebooks online with your lecturers and collaborators.
