About Campus Card
All students are required to have a current Campus Card, and must keep the card with them when on campus to identify themselves as a member of the University community.
All students, faculty, and staff are issued a University of New Haven Campus Card. The card includes the following features: picture ID, 16 digit ISO number, proximity chip, access to online and in-house University library services, and optional paid access to dining, vending, and third party vendor services.
All students are required to have a current Campus Card and must keep the card with them when on campus to identify themselves as a member of the University community. Some events may require ID to be displayed to gain entry. Once issued, the card is valid for 4 years or until you leave the University. Upon leaving the University, the card must be returned.
First Year and transfer students are photographed for their Campus Card during SOAR (Student Orientation and Registration). Students are now being offered the opportunity to submit their initial photo online, provided it meets specific requirements. Cards are issued at the beginning of the Fall semester for those students. Other incoming undergraduate and graduate students, as well as faculty and staff, are issued throughout the year as needed.
Your card is issued at no charge; however, if lost or damanged – this includes hole-punching your card- there is a card replacement cost of $20. Lost or damaged cards will be replaced by the Campus Card Office in the Campus Bookstore. Make lost or damaged card payment at the Campus Card Office using Charger Cash. You can add twenty dollars to your Charger Cash using Visa or Master Card by logging in here.
Cards which are not damaged but are no longer working properly will be replaced free of charge if they are in good condition. If your card is not working (door access or swiping at retail locations), you should stop by the office. The Campus Card staff will determine whether a card replacement is necesssary and if the fee should be waived based on the card’s current condition.
If Charger Cash has been added to the card, it can be used to make purchases at the University Bookstore, the Post Office in Maxcy Hall, and a number of local businesses including Subway, CVS, 7-Eleven, Dunkin Donuts and other locations. More info about Charger Cash.
Your card should be treated as a debit card. If you lose secure possession of the card, report it immediately. The University is not responsible for funds lost as a result of the loss of your card.
If the card is lost, login to eCard and deactivate your card immediately or report the loss to the Campus Card office during business hours (203) 932-7062.
