For those of you who are new to the campus and need to get your Husky Card identification card, or if you are returning and need to get a replacement Husky Card, we would like to let you know that the Husky Card Office is experiencing an unprecedented volume of business, which has resulted in longer lines than is typical. If you do not need your card prior to Wednesday, September 29, we encourage you to consider waiting until that date or after. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
To help ease the demand during business hours, you may request a new or replacement Husky Card by email and pick it up at the Husky Card Office after 2-3 business days. See instructions on the Husky Card Operations Updates page.
Husky Card Office staff are available by phone and email Monday-Friday 8 am–5 pm (closed for lunch, noon–1pm). The office is open for walk-in service (no appointment needed), 9 am–noon and 1–4 pm. Access to the office is limited to the south-facing doors on the ground floor of Odegaard.

Your Husky Card is automatically linked to a reloadable debit account that can be used for on-campus dining, vending machines, and more!
Make deposits, check your account balance and history or suspend a lost card. The Online Card Office is available 24/7!
Whether you’re an incoming student or a department administrator, Husky Card Services is here for you, and our services go well beyond providing you with your campus identification card. Here you’ll find information about all the functions and amenities your card makes available to you such as the Husky Card Account, public transit and the UW Discount Program.
The list of participating campus locations and services that accept the Husky Card Account is constantly expanding.
If you'll be visiting campus with a group and want to dine with us, or if you work at the UW and would like to charge printing and copy services to a budget, you might want to consider a Guest or Department card.
