It gives an impression of a mini-state gone mad with power. Actually many universities are like mini-states... but that's another story. But this should be a lesson of things to come if there is no effective revolt against ID cards and databases.
*Students and staff must carry ID card at all times whilst on University premises.
*Entry to the university can be denied if you are not carrying your ID card - a three strikes policy is in operation.
*The ID card remains the property of the University and must be relinquished to security staff if requested.
*Do not allow anyone else to use your ID card. To do so is a discplinary offence and will be reported to your Head of School. Your card may be temporarily confiscated.
*ID cards must be shown on request to any University member of staff when requested. Refusal to do so is a discplinary offence.
