Welcome to the Yale University ID Card Center website.  The ID Card Center is responsible for the issuance and administration of the Yale University ID Card.  All students, faculty and staff of the University are required to obtain an ID card.  The ID Card identifies you as a current member of the Yale community and should be carried with you at all times while you are on campus.  In addition to serving as identification, the ID card controls access to residential colleges, dining halls, libraries, recreational facilities and other University buildings and services.   Building access is controlled by Access Control in conjunction with the building administrator and/or registrar.  Access Control can be reached at (203) 432-OPEN or 432.open@yale.edu for Central Campus or (203) 785-OPEN or 785.open@yale.edu for the Medical School Campus.

There are 2 University ID Card Centers – one serving primarily the central campus and one serving primarily the medical school and west campus facilities.
