Campus Cards, College and University Identification and Security

City College Norwich taps Alert ID

Wednesday, August 31, 2011

City College Norwich in the UK has inked a deal with Alert ID Group to design a system which will maintain student medical records and emergency contacts ready to dispatch to families and first responders in the event of any emergency.

At the UK campus more than 14,000 students are encouraged to participate in the registration which supplies each student with an emergency ID card that can be used to provide medical staff with quick and easy access to any important medical information.


Each emergency ID card will feature a photograph , a phone number for 24/7 tech support and a member ID that links to the student’s medical history.

The Alert ID service offers both staff and family members the assurance that, should a problem arise at anytime, the safety and well being of the student concerned is protected and enhanced.

Contract changes and expirations have caused a crunch for University of Chicago students looking to top up their ID cards with laundry funds.

The University removed cash-to-card machines from residence halls at the beginning of this academic year, leaving students with just two locations at which they can reload their ID cards for laundry. Now, rather than having machines located in residence halls, the students must report to two central locations, a campus convenience store and Bartlett Hall, a highly trafficked building that contains a dining hall, and other student resources.
