    Default Without referring to/referrence to

    Hi,

    I have written a sentence. Please check if it correct.

    Students are not allowed to enter the main hall without referring to/reference to their names in the ID card provided by school administration. (self-made, just want to know if it is correct)

    Which of both referring to and reference to should be used in the context above. Or are they both acceptable?

    Thanks,

    (If there any mistakes with typo, context etc, please correct them)

    Neither is acceptable.

    It is not clear what students are expected to do if they want to enter the main hall.

    I think you mean they need to display or show their ID cards.
