5.1.11 University Identification Cards

Dominican University issues each student, employee and affiliated guest an identification card that includes their name and image, referred to as a Star Card. The Star Card serves an identification card; an electronic key card controlling access to residence halls and other buildings, the Library, facilities, and staff office buildings; and DU Dollars which can be used to purchase goods and services at select locations on campus. Star Card services are available in the Support Center located in Lewis Hall - Room 048. Visit dom.edu/starcard for more information.

Effective April 25, 2016, the University began issuing DU ID cards with a new design. IDs that are being issued to new employees and new students arriving this fall will look different. Changes have been made to provide increased security, visibility of affiliation, as well as growth for new opportunities for the Star Card on campus. All current students, faculty and staff with existing cards will need to visit the Support Center to replace their former Dominican ID card with a Star Card at no charge. The ID cards look different from existing cards and are based on affiliation. The Support Center and Public Safety would like to make sure all campus departments and services are aware of the change to reduce confusion over the validity of the new cards. ID cards with the former design remain active until September 4, 2016, with restricted functionality for access to dining and library services. After September 4, 2016, former Dominican ID cards will no longer be active or accepted as a valid ID card.

Name badges for new staff members may be ordered through Human Resources. Departments will be charged a nominal fee for replacement badges.
