(Who have business on campus and need access to facilities e.g. Visiting lecturer who requires access to the Library)

Contractors and Visitors are required to have a DCU Identification Card in order to be able to access and use appropriate DCU facilities. The DCU ID Card is available from the Human Resources Department. Please note, however, that for verification purposes, Contractors and Visitors to the University will be asked to produce the following in order for the ID card to be issued to them.

DCU ID Request Form

The ID Form is available from the Estates Office and the HR Department or by clicking on DCU ID Request Form 
Before the ID can be issued the Contractor / Visitor must fill out the DCU ID Request Form and get it signed and stamped by the relevant Administrator/Manager from the School/Unit.

Once issued, new ID Cards will give automatic access to Car Park 2 and Car Park 3. Full details of the Car Parking policy can be viewed at

Swipe Access to Buildings

Should you require swipe access to a particular building, please contact your School/Unit secretary who will in turn contact the Estates Office to activate your card. (The School secretary will need the 13 digit number on the bottom right corner of your card). Staff are asked not to contact the Estates Office directly.
