ID Requirement

NU WildCard

The Northwestern University identification card (WildCARD) identifies registered students and should be carried at all times. The WildCARD is the property of the University and is not transferable; its privileges may be canceled at any time the card is misused. Students are required to surrender their WildCARD to University officials upon request.

The student’s ID number is encoded on the card and indicates whether the student is currently registered and if the card is valid. The card is needed to borrow books from the Northwestern University in Qatar library.

Lost or stolen cards should be reported to the WildCARD office, where replacement cards are issued.

Northwestern University Qatar will also issue you a NU-Q ID CARD which is required to be available for inspection at all times when within Education City. The card will remain valid until you complete your studies and you need to make sure you it carry it with you at all times whilst on University premises.

Building entry

NU-Q staff, faculty, and students are required to show their NU-Q ID to security staff upon entrance to the NU-Q building. Visitors may obtain a guest badge upon entrance. All visitors must show ID and sign in with security. (EC visitors will be required to sign in only while non-EC visitors will be asked to hand in a form of ID in exchange for a visitors pass).

Staff, faculty, students, and visitors must wear their ID card at all times unless equipment is being used or activities are being undertaken which would make it dangerous to wear an ID card. You may be asked by NU-Q facilities management or QF HSSE security staff to show your ID card if it is not visible. If you are not in possession of your NU-Q ID you will be required to obtain a visitor's badge from the building entrance.
