Your Washington University student identification card may be small in size but it has the power to do many things. Your ID card is not only proof of being a student at WashU, but it also holds your points for your meal plan, gives you access to buildings, computer labs on campus, and much more.

Anytime you want to grab a bite or sit down for a meal with your friends, you’ll swipe your ID card at the checkout line and the points you use will be automatically deducted from your meal plan balance. If you want to check out how many meal points are left on your account, you simply log into your WebSTAC account, and there’s a link to the balance of your individual meal plan. Students also have the option to use their ID card for laundry services and snack and beverage purchases at selected vending machines. Students can go online through WebSTAC, add value to their Bear Bucks account, and then simply “swipe” their card at a machine for laundry or vending purchases. Visit card.wustl.edufor more information.

You will receive your student ID card when you arrive on campus; if you come to a program such as Summer Start or at Bear Beginnings or Winter Welcome. If you lose your ID or need it to be replaced, visit Campus Card, located in the Women’s Building Basement, Room 002, or contact them at 314.935-8800, or Toll Free at 855.935-8800 or at campuscard@wustl.edu.

New students, email your photo to campuscard@wustl.edu so they can make your student ID and have it ready for you when you arrive on campus.

  • If you are attending Summer Start please send your photo in at least 10 business days before your session begins. Please indicate that you are attending Summer Start along with the dates you will be attending in the email with your photo.
  • Your photo must be submitted by August 1st to ensure you will have an ID ready on Move-In Day.
