Students – Getting your Campus Card is a simple three step process!

Completed your application? Check your Carleton email for important status updates.

Step 1: Register for Classes

We can only produce cards for students who are registered in a current or upcoming term.

Step 2: Apply for your Campus Card

If you are eligible for a U-Pass, we will make it at the same time! Find eligibility requirements here.

If you can’t apply online…

  • Visit our office to have your card made in person.
  • Are you a long distance student? Students studying at a distance (100 km or more) should contact the CUOL Office to request their card. This card will not have your picture and must be presented with a second piece of photo ID when used. Non-CUOL students please visit the Campus Card Office.

Step 3: Check your Carleton Email

We will email you with more information about your card.

  • Visit our hours of operation page to find out when we’re open – and where!
  • Summer Orientation participants will receive their card during their session
  • Residence students will have their card available in their move-in package.

Please note that we do not mail the Card out to you; you must pick it up in person and you must present a piece of government issued photo ID to obtain your Campus Card.

Staff and Faculty Members

Please note that not all staff and faculty members are entitled to a Campus Card. This is dependent on your status with Human Resources (login required).

Not sure? You can check your eligibility in Carleton Central’s Employee Services page!

If you require a card for door access, please have your Departmental Administrator contact
