The KU Card Center is currently closed until further notice while the KU community addresses the ever evolving COVID-19 situation. Because of our absence we will be checking emails and phone messages from remote locations. We will contact you as soon as possible to address your questions/concerns.

In the meantime, we suggest you check our website for information that may be helpful to you. We care about our customers and will help as much as possible.  While we follow guidelines and directives given by the University, we thank you for your patience and understanding while we all care for ourselves and our loved ones.

Welcome to the KU Card Center

The KU Card Center is responsible for the issuance and management of the KU Card, which is the official University of Kansas identification card for students, faculty, staff, and other members of the KU community. We report to the Vice Provost for Administration & Finance.

The KU Card provides access to university facilities, services, cash convenience, and more. Approximately 13,000 – 14,000 new and replacement cards are produced annually. In addition to the KU Card, we issue departmental badges and visitor cards.

Other responsibilities include: software/hardware installation and maintenance; technical support and consulting; merchant settlement; program design and maintenance; and program marketing.

Our mission:  To be a welcoming and friendly place where students, faculty, and staff at The University of Kansas go to get their official ID card, and to issue and manage a card our customers are proud to carry and can rely on for many of their campus and off-campus transactions.
