About the University ID Card

UW-Green Bay Students, Faculty, and Staff are issued a University ID card as part of their ongoing relationship with the University. The University ID card is the official UW-Green Bay identification and should be carried with you or be readily available to you while on any UW-Green Bay campus. On the main campus, you will be asked to present your University ID card to access select buildings and classrooms. Your University ID card also gives you access to your University accounts, and allows you to gain access to campus services. For more information, see the Student ID Card Policy.

This card is the property of UW-Green Bay, and serves as your official University identification card. It should be carried at all times, as it is required to access many University buildings, grounds and services. This card is non-transferable and fraudulent use or alteration warrants confiscation and/or disciplinary action.

For information regarding identification required to vote on campus, see the Voter ID Policy.

3. Be Prepared to Take a Photo for Your University ID:

This will be your main form of identification on any campus and you may use your Student ID daily. We want you to look good, so here’s some tips:

  1. You don’t have to dress fancy; your normal clothes will be just fine.
  2. Your face needs to be clearly visible in the photo, and cannot be covered.  Remove wireless devices and headphones. 
  3. No hats, bandanas, or other head wear should be worn with exception to any religious clothing that is worn daily, including headpieces.
  4. Uniforms should not be worn in the photo with exception to law enforcement, military personnel, and University Dining Services.
  5. Prescription glasses are allowed, but the lenses cannot be darkened or create a glare in the picture.
  6. Please keep your hands away from your face and out of the view of the camera.
  7. Smile big!
