Card Top-Up

The CIT Smart Card is a new introduction to staff life in college. An identity card, but a lot more. The card has a Mifare contact-less chip built into it, which the college hopes to develop to deliver services to its users.

Your card will provide you with the following:

  • Access to campus copiers
  • Library access
  • Library book checkout
  • Access to offices, classrooms and laboratories
  • Food service and shop purchases (debit account)
  • Campus drink/snack vending machines (debit account)
  • Campus car parking facilities

The CIT Smart Card is your primary form of campus identification and all staff are expected to have a card. You can obtain your card from the Card Services Office, located in the Nexus Student Centre.

The Smart Card acts as a personal electronic purse, where you can deposit money for use at "Smart" locations. The preferred method of depositing money on your card is through the web value load portal, where money can be transferred from your bank account via your Laser or Credit Card onto your debit account.
