Indentification Card (Campus Card)

Kanbar Center Front Desk


Fall and Spring Hours: (Anytime during the operation hours of The Kanbar Campus Center).

All undergraduate, continuing studies, graduate students, faculty and staff are issued the Campus Card, a multipurpose ID card. The Campus Card can be used for a variety of campus activities. It must be presented in order to check out library books, use of the meal plan, attend athletic or campus events and the check-out recreation equipment. The card can also function as a debit card at the dining hall, Ted's Barista and Common Thread, the Convenience Store, Campus Bookstore, vending machines, photocopiers and washers/dryers. Students may add money to their account at the Cashier's Window in Archer Hall. Lastly, the Campus Card serves as an ID which verifies that the holder is a student at Jefferson (Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University). Security officers, Residence Life staff, or University faculty and administrators may ask to see a student's Campus Card at any time to prove that he or she is a member of the University community. It is the student's responsibility to have the card at all times.

Falsifying, altering or loaning a Campus Card is strictly prohibited and will result in disciplinary action. No student may possess more than one Campus Card.

The Campus Card can be useful around Philadelphia for student discounts at various locations. It provides out-of-town students with the means to open a membership in the Free Library of Philadelphia, a beneficial way to supplement the resources of the University library.

Replacement ID cards may be obtained at the Welcome and Information Desk in the Kanbar Campus Center at a cost of $25. The $25 replacement fee is non-refundable. Stolen IDs require proof to avoid fee.  Malfunctioning IDs will be tested to avoid fee.
