About the U Card
The U Card is the official dual-purpose card for the University of North Dakota that is an identification card and a debit card. All enrolled students, faculty, and staff are eligible to receive a card. This ID card provides access to library resource materials, entrance to athletic events and dining services. In addition, the U Card can be used as a debit card for purchases made on campus.
On the front of each U Card is your photograph, Empl number (your student ID # or User ID #), and a bar code. Because your photo and ID number are on the card, you can use it any time identification is needed on campus.
The bar code is used for checking out books at the Chester Fritz Library, as well as the the Medical School Library, and the Law Library, if you have access to these specialized libraries. The back of the card contains a notice to cardholders and one magnetic stripe. This magnetic stripe will need to be protected against scratches and other magnetic objects (such as a cell phone).
Your card is valid and remains active as long as you are a registered student or employee. The "01" or "02" tells us how many cards have been issued to you. A U Card is valid for as long as the person retains their student, faculty, or staff status at UND.
