U Card Administration

Helping to keep you connected to campus resources.


Your U Card is your official University of Minnesota ID. Inside of the card is smart chip technology and wiring that runs through the entire card; on the back is a magnetic strip. All of these functions work together to grant individuals access into buildings as well as several other student/staff/and faculty resources.

  • The Office of Information Technology provides technical support for the U Card Office.
  • The U Card Office provides all faculty/staff/student support for all U Card functions.

Visit your campus U Card Office for services.
