Campus Cards, College and University Identification and Security

New campus cards to be issued to Florida university students

Monday, December 10, 2012

Because it’s moving to a new banking partner, the University of Central Florida, Orlando, is requiring all students and staff to obtain new ID cards.

The new partner is Fairwinds Credit Union, which is opening a new campus branch in January.

Students and staff have until the end of January to turn in their old cards and receive a new one compatible with Fairwinds. There is no charge for the new cards.


According to UCF’s Web site, Fairwinds will offer students, faculty, and staff the ability to link their UCF ID card to a Fairwinds checking account, allowing the card to be used both on- and off-campus at retail and ATM locations.

The credit union also provides free ATM transactions at Publix Super Markets and at Fairwinds branch locations.
