Yale University ID Card Center

Welcome to the Yale University ID Card Center website. The ID Card Center is responsible for the issuance and administration of all Yale University ID Cards  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 Yale Security Access Control in conjunction with the building administrator and/or registrar.

There are two University ID Card Centers, one serving central campus and the other serving the medical school and west campus facilities.

Access Control can be reached at (203) 432-OPEN or 432.open@yale.edu.
