Student ID Card
You will be issued with a GMIT Student ID card when you start college, provided you have already registered online. This card contains your ID number and photographic image. It is used as official identification for exams, access to the library and when requesting letters, forms, etc. The cost of a replacement Student ID card is €10.
The photographic image taken when a Student ID card is being produced is for identification purposes and is attached to your IT account i.e. email, moodle, etc. You are permitted to remove the photographic image from your IT account if you wish.
As a registered student, you will have access to free Wi-Fi and the use of computers at all GMIT campuses. You will also have access to free Wi-Fi in other colleges throughout Europe via eduroam. Once you have registered online, you will receive your IT password by text. Your student email address will be YourIDnumber@gmit.ie, e.g. G0012345@gmit.ie.
You should check your account regularly, as we will send important emails about exams (schedules, results, etc.) to your student email address.
You will need your GMIT email address and your password to access the student intranet. Students can access a range of resources through student.gmit.ie (Note: no www). These resources include:
You will also find information relating to student services in the college and GMIT Students’ Union. To access student.gmit.ie you will need to input your email address and your IT password.
Learnonline (often referred to as Moodle) is GMIT’s online learning platform. Your lecturers will use this to provide you with notes and links to resources, to communicate with you, and in some instances, to assess you.
