Campus Card Exchange

We are pleased to announce the university’s new campus cards have arrived and will be available for distribution beginning April 2019.

The cards feature a black and gold theme with the Retriever logo prominently displayed on the front and emergency contact information for quick access included on the back. This is the first campus card redesign in more than a decade, and we are excited to have a new design that reflects our culture of caring and support.

Why am I getting a new campus card?

In fall 2018, UMBC students shared a list of requests and recommendations with the UMBC administration to improve community safety and wellbeing, including prevention and response to sexual violence and misconduct. The new cards respond to recommendations from UMBC students to expand information available. The new card is just one of the projects under the Retriever Courage initiative.

What is Retriever Courage?

Retriever Courage is a campus-wide initiative to develop a productive dialogue and create a coordinated campus process for preventing and responding to incidents of sex discrimination and sexual violence/misconduct in a proactive, caring, and transparent manner.

What do I need to bring?

All members of the UMBC community receiving new cards are required to bring the following:

  • Existing, current campus card. You will not be able to receive your new campus card without exchanging your current one. This is for security reasons.
  • Second form of identification for verification purposes. Approved forms of identification include:
    • Current Driver’s License, Learner’s Permit, or State ID
    • Passport or Passport Card
    • Government-Issued ID
    • Permanent Resident Card

What if my campus card is lost or stolen?

If your current campus card is lost or stolen, please submit a support ticket with Campus Card Services as soon as possible. Lost or stolen cards require us to void your current one and reprint a new one. Once we have received your ticket, we will contact you and set up a time for you to stop by the Campus Card Center to issue you a new card.
