Staff Totum (formally NUS extra) card

Notes for Staff - How to obtain your Totum card to enjoy student discounts in the UK and abroad.

University of Sussex staff can obtain their Totum card (previously named NUS extra card) by one of two routes, as described on the USSU website

You have two choices:

  1. Go direct to the Students Union at Falmer House where a photo will be taken and your card will be produced during your visit.  This is the quickest way to obtain a card.
  2. Should you prefer to apply online:
    • You will need to attach a photo of yourself via Facebook or by emailing a photo to your work email address, saving it on your PC, then uploading it from there when prompted during the application process. 
    • In making your application, you need to use your University email address rather than a personal email address.
    • Your 'period of study’ needs to be for three years from when the current academic year commenced.
    • Importantly, you need to select ‘Other’ in the drop down menu when prompted for your ‘course of study
    • You can choose to have your card delivered to the Student Union Information point in Falmer House (it will arrive within 7 working days).  Alternatively, should you choose to have it delivered to your home address, you will need to pay postage (currently £1.50)
