Your MSOE ID card is the official campus identification card of the university and is required for all enrolled students. The ID card serves multiple purposes:
- Campus identification
- Campus building access

- Library usage and access
- Raider Plan Dining – on and off campus
- Kern Center Memberships
- Athletic event access
- Printing services
- Book Slips in the Bookstore
ID cards are issued to all university students, staff, and faculty with the primary intended purpose to provide identification, access to various facilities and functions while providing a secure campus community. For the majority of cardholders, the access you’ll need is automatically assigned to your Campus ID Card.
The MSOE ID card will remain active until a student withdraws or graduates.
Lost or stolen cards should be reported immediately. A replacement card will be reissued and costs $10.
