- To ensure no one else can use your card if it is lost or stolen, you need to log onto your Online UniCard Account and click ‘ Cancel My UniCard’ and follow the instructions carefully.
- Remember someone else could borrow books, or a laptop computer from the library or use credit on your card, so it's important to cancel your card quickly.
- Once the card is cancelled any money left on the card can be added back into your account – unlike cash it’s not gone for good.
What happens if someone is caught using my UniCard?
Anyone caught using a UniCard who is not the owner of the card may be subject to university disciplinary action or formal criminal liability. The card will immediately be confiscated by a member of staff and where possible returned to the rightful owner. Do not allow anyone else to use your UniCard.
What happens if someone hands in my UniCard?
The UniCard Service Centre receives the majority of all returned UniCards (including associated wallets or purses) which are stored in a secure location and every effort is made to contact the owner by phone and email to arrange collection. Wallets and purses must be collected in person and formal identification will be required.
What happens to uncollected UniCards, wallets and purses?
If UniCards are not collected within six months they will be destroyed. The issue of uncollected wallets and purses will be referred to the University of Brighton’s Audit Office for guidance.
