UNC One Card

The UNC One Card Office provides an interactive campus ID card with superior innovative technologies in financial and access transactions to our diverse customer base, including faculty, staff, students, and affiliates.

The One Card is a multipurpose card. In addition to being the student’s University identification card, it is also used to get athletic tickets or gain free admission; to access the campus transportation system, recreation center, and Student Health Services; and to check out resources from the library. The card can also be used as a debit card to purchase meals, snacks, books, and school supplies. All on-campus laundry facilities and most vending machines accept the One Card.
