The Staff Card is your primary form of campus identification - all staff are expected to have a card.

When do I get a Staff Card?

On commencement of employment in MTU, each new staff member is issued with an Active Directory account number (unique staff ID) in the format RSSSxxx. Subsequently, IT Services set up an email address and a logon account which can be used on all IT systems. On receipt of an application form from Human Resources, which has been signed by both HR and the line manager/Head of Function, a staff card can be issued.


Cards are produced in the Reprographics and Card Services Office located in Room S102 on the ground floor of the Nexus Student Centre.


The staff card is the property of Munster Technological University and must be returned to the Human Resources office upon leaving the college.
