Can I apply for a Semester Card and a Student Discount Card?

Yes! Any Hull University student can apply for a Semester Card, and you can have a Student Discount Card too, if you want. Many Hull University students in Halls of Residence decide to buy both tickets. That way you get cheaper fares on our university buses with the Semester Card, and you can use your Student Discount Card to save money on buses outside of Hull, for example for shopping trips to York, travelling to your part time job, visiting the seaside or commuting to a work placement.

What happens if I lose my card, or it is stolen or damaged?

Can I let another student use my ticket or pass?

What happens if I leave university before the ticket expires?
