Campus Cards, College and University Identification and Security

U.S. Bank partners with Hamline University

Tuesday, May 1, 2012

A new partnership between Hamline University, Saint Paul, Minn. and U.S. Bank will enable the school to offer enhanced banking services to its students, faculty and staff through the school’s campus ID card.

The card, when linked to a U.S. Bank account, can be used at ATMs and as a PIN-based debit card. It’s also good at any merchant that accepts debit cards. Hamline’s ID Card also includes a meal plan and can be used in the library to check out materials.


“We are extremely pleased to offer the newly designed and increasingly versatile Hamline ID cards,” said Doug Anderson, the school’s vice president of finance. “This partnership will allow our students and employees the convenience of aligning a PIN-based U.S. Bank debit card and a Hamline ID card, should a student or employee choose to do so, eliminating the need for two separate cards.”

According to U.S. News & World Report, Hamline is the top-ranked university in Minnesota in its class. Founded in 1854, Hamline is also Minnesota’s first university. [end] 

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.
