  • ask your Head of Department to authorise the form;
  • submit the application to Security and Traffic Services for the Joondalup campus or the Campus Support Office for the Mt Lawley campus; and
  • the Security and Traffic Services/Campus Support Office will issue you with a card and request activation (please allow 24-48 hours for processing of your application).

How do I change the access on my card?

If additional access is required you need to follow the above process and document the additional areas you wish to access.
