Faculty and staff, find out how and where to use your Campus Card.

COVID-19 Status Update:

Beginning March 23rd, the Campus Cards Office will be closed for the health and safety of both our clients and our staff due to COVID-19.

We will offer an appointment only service on Wednesdays from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Clients must email us at campuscards@ucsd.edu by the end of the business day (EOD) each Tuesday in order to schedule an appointment.

Employees who need E-Access ID cards can instead request an "E" sticker from the EH&S Office, located at University Centers 301/401. Their hours of operation are M-F, 9 a.m.-4 p.m., and can be reached via email or at (858) 246-4808.

We look forward to reopening and serving our clients in the future and will update this page once we reopen.

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:

Need to find your employee number? Employees can access their employee number via MyTime (within the "Summary" tab) and via the "Earnings Statement" feature through At Your Service Online.

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 UCSD email address . Please also complete our Campus Cards Special Request form and attach it to your email (please note that there are two different tabs you must complete on the form).

Emergency Access Requests

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. Please note that campus affiliates are ineligible for E-Access ID cards.
