Faculty & Staff

Card Issuance

New employees must first complete the required new hire paperwork with the Office of Human Resources prior to receiving an ID card. Once the paperwork is complete, be sure to bring the necessary documentation (driver's license, passport, or state issued ID card) and be ready to take your picture!


General building/facility access is automatically assigned to your card at the time of printing. Examples include RecSports facilities and Hesburgh Library access. More specific door access will need to be requested by your department/office administrator through Locksmith Services by submitting an AIM order. Be sure to follow-up with your department/office administrator to ensure access has been requested and is set up properly. A Personal Identification Number (PIN) is required along with your campus ID card when accessing some of the restricted areas. The 4-digit PIN is automatically assigned once your card is printed. Please click here to view or change your PIN and be sure to keep it confidential! Note: To access the PIN page you must be using restricted campus WiFi (eduroam), or be logged into the VPN. Take good care of your card and should you lose it, report it "lost" right away. If you have questions contact the Campus Card Office.  


Faculty and Staff have several options ranging from convenient block plans, to the increasingly popular "Value Meals". Upon purchase the meal plan is programed to your card and ready to be used. More information about these plans can be found here. You can check to see the balance of an active meal plan at get.nd.edu.


Your card can be used for making purchases both on and off-campus. Domer Dollars is a convenient campus debit account, which allows funds to be added to your card via a credit/debit card. Once added, Domer Dollars can be used to make purchases at all campus retail locations and select off-campus locations. More information on Domer Dollars can be found here. You can check your Domer Dollar balance, or view transaction history by logging-in at get.nd.edu. Also, when making purchases at any of the University Bookstore locations be sure to show your ID card and get your discount!     


There are many campus events that require verification of your campus ID card for entry. You should always be ready to provide your campus ID card for verification, so it's best to have your card with you at all times.     


The South Bend Bus service (Transpo) is available for free with an active "Faculty" or "Employee" Notre Dame ID card.
