Students are the University of Kentucky will be issued new campus ID cards starting in the spring, according to the Kentucky Kernel.
The Wildcard UKID Center along with the UK Police Department will update student and faculty IDs as part of UK’s new security measures.
The university will go through a re-carding process, switching out students’ current Wildcards for the new, IDs. Incoming students in the fall will automatically receive the news IDs.
The new IDs still will have pictures of the students and the background of the ID will be changed. As a part of the campus security project passed by the Board of Trustees, UKPD is working to consolidate and create a uniformity of standards when it comes to access control.
