About Campus Card

Your Campus Card is your employee ID and key to the campus. In addition to serving as your official photo identification card and security badge, the Campus Card will give you access to campus buildings and events, and lets you:

Special Badge Requests

If you are a department on-campus and need to request special badges (i.e. RA badges, CSO badges, etc.), please contact us at our Gmail account. Please be sure to provide full details of your request, including names, badge design (if applicable), requested date of completion, and department index in which to charge the order. 

The card also gives proof of official campus affiliation for quick identification during an emergency or major disaster. If your job duties grant you special access during an emergency, your department can request this designation on your card.
