All students, faculty and staff of the University are required to obtain an ID card. The ID Card Center is responsible for the issuance and administration of all Yale University ID Cards. The ID Card identifies you as a current member of the Yale community and should be carried at all times while you are on campus.
Lost or Stolen ID Cards
Lost or stolen ID cards should be immediately reported to Yale University Security at (203) 785-5555. If your ID card has been lost, stolen, or damaged, 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 cash or 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.
