Campus Cards, College and University Identification and Security

Arizona students to begin wearing ID card

Friday, July 27, 2012

High school students will be issued a photo student ID and lanyard during registration week and middle school students will get theirs a few weeks after school starts. While the ID and lanyard are free, if the card is lost or stolen, students are likely to be charged a replacement fee.

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.
