Yale University requires that all students be issued an official Yale University photo identification card. You will need this card to gain access to:

  • Residential colleges
  • Dining halls
  • Library services
  • Payne Whitney Gym and athletic events
  • Transportation facilities and other university services
  • Discounts with local merchants

In order to have your University ID card ready for you upon your arrival on campus, you will be requested to electronically submit a color PASSPORT PHOTO.  If a Passport Photo is not possible, you may submit a color snapshot showing a full front view of your head and shoulders. You will also have the option of mailing a photo in lieu of an electronic upload to:

Yale ID Center
P.O. Box 202137
New Haven, CT 06520-2137

For  more information, contact the ID Center at http://www.yale.edu/sfas/idcard/index.html.

Please upload your photo as soon as possible. Note: You must activate your NetID first.
