Lost/Stolen/Damaged Card

Lost or stolen ID cards should be immediately reported to Yale University Security at (203) 785-5555.

If your card has been lost or stolen, you may obtain a replacement ID/Access/Student card at the ID Center. The fee for a lost or stolen ID card is $20 for cards with a proximity chip (used for door access) or $5 for magnetic stripe only cards. Payment can be made in the form of check or credit/debit card (Mastercard, Visa or Union Pay). Students also have the option of charging the lost card fee to their student account.

During non-business hours, security may be contacted to assist with a lockout by calling (203) 785-5555.

If your card has been inadvertently damaged or is no longer functioning, please bring the damaged card to the ID Center for a replacement. As long as you return the damaged card, there is no cost for the replacement.  Note, however, that the ID Center reserves the right to charge a replacement fee for any cards that appear to be intentionally damaged or defaced.
