My Purdue ID Card

Your Purdue ID card, which is sometimes referred to as your PUID card or photo ID, proclaims you as a member of the Purdue community. It provides access to a variety of services on and off campus with a one-card solution that encompasses academics, finance, access and identification for:

  • Advisors
  • Distance learners
  • Faculty
  • Federal, state and contract employees
  • Non-employees and visitors
  • Retirees
  • Staff
  • Students
  • Visiting scholars

Depending on which of the above categories you fall into, your Purdue ID card provides access through a combination of numeric identification, photographic identification, magnetic strip and chip technology. The card functions as your key to many facilities and services on campus, including:

  • BoilerExpress spending
  • Building access
  • Library services
  • Meals
  • Recreational sports
  • Transportation
