What is your U Card?

Your U Card identifies you as a student, staff, or faculty member on the UMD campus. Your first U Card is available at no charge to you, and may be obtained at the U Card Office in Kirby Plaza, Room 127. Please bring your government issued photo ID and be prepared to have your picture taken.

Use your U Card for:

  • Campus ID purposes
  • Accessing your TCF U Card Checking Account
  • Checking out library materials
  • Entering the recreational sports center, computer labs, buildings and residence hall Dining Center
  • Art and athletic ticket discounts
  • Accessing art materials, student employment, business school services and more!
  • DTA, FREE bus access for fee paying students
  • Dining Dollars Program
  • UMD Stores and Print Shop charges with photo ID

Since your U Card never expires, keep it even after you leave the University. If you ever return as a student, staff or faculty member, your card will still be valid.

Report lost or stolen U Cards immediately! There is a $25 replacement fee for lost, stolen, or damaged U Cards. A new photo is taken for each replacement.

If you have a TCF Bank account, please report lost or stolen U Cards to TCF.

If you find a U Card, please return it to the Duluth U Card Office immediately.man handing ucard to a cashier
