The UMBC Campus Card is an integral part of campus life. As the official identification card of the university, it establishes access to campus resources such as the Retriever Activity Center (RAC) and the library, opens doors as part of access control, and allows you to deposit funds which can be used both on campus and at participating off-campus merchants.
Like an on-campus post office, UMBC Mail Services handles the postal needs of the campus and provides domestic FedEx shipping services and all United States Postal Service (USPS) mailing services with the exception of money orders and passport processing. Customers can purchase a Personal Mail Box (PMB) to handle their individual receiving needs. All mail services are available exclusively through the use of the Campus Card.
