Upon hire, a new employee must meet the following conditions in order to receive a Campus Identification Card:
- Have a current employee number and have completed all payroll hire screens in the Payroll and Personnel System (PPS)
- Must have an active appointment in the PPS System 24 hours prior to the issue of an Employee ID Card.
The Campus Card serves as the official photo identification card and security badge for UC - San Diego. In addition, it can serve as a door access key to general buildings and high security areas, as well as be utilized by Bookstore, UC Libraries, Imprints and other on-campus services. The Campus Card and all its services are based upon an active employee number.
It is very important that employment appointments are kept active in the system to avoid disruption in services on campus.
These instructions also apply to those who qualify for campus affiliate ID cards.
All faculty and staff members who have a valid UC San Diego employee ID number are entitled to a Campus Card.
Note: For departments providing budget indexes, please be aware that we usually charge indexes around the 7th of each month. Please be sure to provide a budget index that will be remain active through at least the first week of the following month.
Note: The UCSD Campus Card Office does not grant building access. If an employee or affiliate requires specific building, lab, etc. access, they must speak with their supervisor or building manager to request this access.
