University of Iowa Access Cards

UI Access Cards FAQs

What is an access card?

An access card is used to gain entry into a locked building or room instead of using keys.

How do I get an access card?

New incoming students who attend orientation will receive their access card with their University ID. Students that did not attend orientation will need to go to the Iowa One Card office.

What are my responsibilities?

  • Maintain, secure and be responsible for any access card issued.
  • Do not share or loan your card.
  • Report loss or theft of access card to Department of Public Safety, residence hall desk, supervisor, building coordinator, or Access Services.
  • Do not punch hole in card.

When do I return my access card?

The card is the property of the University of Iowa.  It is non-transferable and must be returned to the university upon request or separation.

How do I replace a broken, lost or stolen access card?

All lost or stolen cards should be reported to the Department of Public Safety, residence hall desk, supervisor, building coordinator, or Access Services.

Do I need a card for each building?

No. Access for individual buildings can be assigned to the card by the building coordinator for the specific building, or administrative software operator.
