I need access to a building on campus. Can the U Card Office grant me access?

No, the U Card Office does not control door access. You should contact your supervisor or department head in order to be granted access.

Why does a replacement cost $30? Isn't it just a plastic card?

The cards actually cost over $30 to produce, but we subsidize that cost. Inside of the card is smart chip technology and wiring that runs through the entire card; on the back is a magnetic strip. All of these functions work together to grant individuals access into buildings and also access to all of the 5 separate accounts on the U Card.

How could my U Card have gotten demagnetized?

Allowing your U Card to become close to other magnetic objects (cell phone, large magnetics, medical equipment).
