Commuter Students

Student ID Card

Your UP student ID card serves not only to identify you as a member of the UP community, it also provides access to the library and other academic buildings for after-hours study, and gets you into on-campus events.

Commuter students can pick up an ID card at the Campus Safety office located in Suite 100 in Haggerty Hall, 5415 N. Warren St. near the Chiles Center.  For information or questions on campus parking permit, contact the Campus Safety office.

All students have 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., 7 days a week, card access to: Buckley Center, Dundon-Berchtold Hall, Franz Hall, Mago Hunt Center, Romanaggi Hall, Shiley Hall, and Swindells Hall.  Students are allowed in academic buildings until midnight, but card access shuts off at 10:00 p.m.
