The UMBC Campus Card is an integral part of campus life. It is the instrument that establishes your identity at UMBC, give access to various services such as the Library and RAC, opens doors as part of access control and, with the depositing of funds, buys services and merchandise both on campus and at participating stores in the surrounding communities.

While UMBC Mail Services handles the postal needs of campus departments, individuals have access to United States Postal Service (USPS) mailing services and Federal Express (FedEx) shipping resources through the Campus Card Center. Sales are cashless with purchases made using the Campus Card. All USPS services, except money orders and passport photos are available.
