Get a Card: I'm a Student


All students at the University are entitled to an ID card. We are a one-card campus — all campus amenities are serviced via the one UVM CATcard. This card provides you access to your privileges, meal plans, door access and the UVM debit account known as CAT$cratch. To get your UVM ID you are required to bring a form of a government issued photo ID with you (Driver's license, Military ID, Passport) high school ID's are not accepted.  Your first student card is free.
