I have a Student & Staff account, do I have to do inductions twice?
You only need to complete each induction once per calendar year, under one of your uni IDs. When completing inductions, please submit under one uni ID only (preferably your staff numberplate).

Then submit a Technical Ticket Request, selecting Booking System as your Impacted Area – asking to have your inductions copied over to your Staff or Student account (whichever you did not originally complete them under).

This will enable card access to be activated on both cards.
