Vandal Card: The Official ID Card for the University of Idaho
Your Vandal Card is your student ID card.
Your Vandal Card is your official student ID. It is also the official employee ID card for staff, faculty, and affiliated persons. Vandal Cards are used over two million times per year for many purposes on campus. It provides access to numerous events and facilities including: athletic events, recreational facilities, the Student Health Center, and the library. Many locations use it for door access. It is used to obtain payroll and financial aid checks. The Vandal Card can also used as a prepaid debit card for purchasing university goods and services.
Students must be registered for at least one credit for the semester that a card is requested to qualify for a Vandal Card. Faculty, Staff, and Affiliates' eligibility is determined by employee status. Full-time, part-time, and PERSI-eligible empolyees qualify. Non-PERSI-eligible employees also qualify, but an email from their supervisor to firstname.lastname@example.org is required in addition.
Vandal Cards are issued at the Vandal Card Office in the Student Union Building. Valid state or federal government issued picture identification is required.
