Transport for London

As a student with us, you can get an 18+ Student Oyster photocard and save 30% against the price of adult rate Travelcards and Bus & Tram Passes.

Students can order an Oyster photocard containing their personal details and then use it to get discounts on Travelcards for the week or the month.

If you are a new student in London and you are looking to apply for an Oyster Card, you need to make an online application on the Transport for London website.

You will need:

  • Your LON Student Number
  • The course start and end dates
  • A digital photograph to upload
  • An active email address
  • A debit/credit card to pay the application fee of £20.00

The first step is creating your account and setting up your username and password. When creating your account, you have to register your personal details, including home address in London (for your Oyster PhotoCard to be delivered to you by post), telephone number and other personal details.

Once you have completed the application, uploaded the picture and submitted the application fee payment, simply hit the Send button and wait for two to three weeks for the card to arrive at your home address.

You can then use your 18+ Student Oyster photocard once you\'ve added a Travelcard or Bus & Tram Pass season ticket, or when you've added pay as you go credit.
