Full-time students can apply for an 18+ TfL oyster card providing a third off travel in London. Students must apply online on the TfL website. Applicants will require a digital photograph and a credit/debit card. Applicants can check their eligibility with the Student Funding Office or on the TfL website; the TfL website also includes important information about how and when applications will be validated.
The Student Funding Office approves all Student Oyster Photo cards (i.e. confirms that the student is registered as full-time for TfL), and can check what stage the application is at. Students can contact the Student Funding Office if they experience any problem with their oyster card.
When you make your Oyster Card application, please ensure that you select King’s College London as the institution:
King’s College London – James Clerk Maxwell Building (institution code 0403)
Applications cannot be approved until the first day of term, so the Student Funding Office will begin approving them from then onwards.
If you are between 16 and 25 years old, or a full-time student over 25 you can purchase a 16-25 Railcard which will save you 1/3 on rail fares throughout the UK for either a year or three years.
You can either apply online or pick up a hard copy form from any train station or at the Student Services desk at any Campus.
If you are over 25 and a full-time student applying for the railcard, then you will need the University to verify this. Take the form to any Student Services desk along with your student ID card and they will sign and stamp this for you. If you're using the hard copy form, then you'll need to bring a passport photo to Student Services as well.
