At a loss?

How do I replace a lost or stolen Bodleian Reader Card?

The process for the replacement of a lost or stolen Bodleian Reader Card is the same as for a first-time application or renewal. Readers will need to complete a Bodleian Librariesí Admission Form, and to bring this to the Admissions Office in person, along with one form of personal identification and one form of proof of address.

There is a standard £6 charge for the replacement of a lost Bodleian Reader Card.

In the case of a stolen Bodleian Reader Card, we are able to issue a replacement card free of charge if we are provided with a crime reference number issued from the police services.


How do I replace a lost or stolen (blue) University of Oxford Student or Staff Card?

If you are currently a member of staff or a student at the University of Oxford and your (blue) University card is lost, stolen or damaged, you should immediately inform your College (for students) or Faculty/Department, or institution administrator (in the case of staff). They will advise you as to how to proceed, and will organize a replacement card via the University Card Office.

Further information about how to replace lost, stolen or damaged University Cards is available here.

The Bodleian Librariesí Admissions Office is unable to issue replacement University Cards. While you are waiting for a replacement University Card to be issued and sent to your College, Faculty/Department or institution, you may be unable to access the Bodleian Libraries; if that is the case, you may come to the Bodleian Librariesí Admissions Office during our opening hours so that we can issue you with a temporary day pass in order to provide access to the Libraries in the meantime.

To help us issue a day pass, please bring a form of personal identification.
