Press play to view video

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

Your card will provide you with access to the following:

  • Campus copiers (debit account)
  • Campus print services
  • Campus reprographic services
  • Library access
  • Library book checkout
  • Access to laboratories (limited based on student/course requirements)
  • Food service/shop purchases (debit account)
  • Campus car parking facilities

The CIT SmartCard is your primary form of campus identification and all staff and students 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 in which you can deposit money for use at "Smart" locations. There are a number of methods to top up your card.

  • Through the web portal, where money can be transferred from your bank account via your Laser or Credit Card onto your debit account. This portal can be accessed from the myCIT homepage, or by clicking here
  • You can top up your SmartCard at all shops, the main canteen and the Bistro.
  • A new CIT top up app is available for download from Google Play or Apple Store. For full details on how to download and configure please click here.

Please read the terms and conditions of SmartCard use.
