Applying online is the only way to receive your discount entitlement. Your 18+ Student Oyster photocard will be sent to the address you provide and should arrive within five to seven days after approval from King's (this is carried out by the Student Funding Office).
Please note that when applying you will need:
- A colour, digital photo
- Your student, enrolment ID from your school, college or university
- A London address
- A valid debit or credit card to pay the £20 administration fee
- An active, valid email address
When applying for your TfL 18+ oyster card please ensure you search for 'Kings College London' and select the entry with address ‘Kings College London, James Clerk Maxwell Building, 57 Waterloo Road.’
If selecting the institution from a list, make sure to select Kings College London, and not the NHS Foundation Trust or “Kings London.”
If you don’t apply to the correct 'Kings College London' your application will be rejected by another institution and you may have to make a new application and incur the £20 administration fee again.
When entering your Course Details (Step 3) you will be asked to provide your Student enrolment (ID) Number. This is the 7 or 8 digit number on your student card. Please do not enter the ID that begins with a “K” as this may cause delays in approving your application.
