Starting today, the UNC One Card can now be added as a mobile ID to compatible iPhone and Apple Watch devices. Students, employees and affiliates will be able to use the mobile One Card to access campus buildings, make payments and purchases, and more!
“We are excited to offer this secure mobile solution to our campus community,” said Scott Myers, executive director of Auxiliary Services. “We continuously look for new technologies, and we think that students and employees will appreciate this new and convenient way to use their One Cards from their phones.”
The mobile One Card is considered a valid form of University ID and provides an additional level of convenience and accessibility. Once added to Apple Wallet, the mobile One Card can be used anywhere the physical card is used, both on and off campus (except as voter ID.) Using contactless technology, cardholders can present their iPhone or Apple Watch to card readers to pay for food and vending, open campus doors, and access parking lots and athletic events. You don’t have to wake the device or open an app.
Cardholders can view meal plan, Flex and other account balances directly on their mobile One Card. Mobile One Cards can also be instantly and remotely issued, revoked or reactivated, offering an added level of control and fraud protection for cardholders.
To add your One Card to your iPhone or Apple Watch, follow the step-by-step instructions at Mobile One Card. You can add the One Card to both your iPhone and Apple Watch, but only one format of the card (physical or mobile) will be permitted. Once a card is added to Apple Wallet, the physical card will no longer work. However, cardholders are encouraged to keep their physical card to use as a valid voter ID.
Building and parking lot access is no longer provided through the GET or Mobile ID apps. Cardholders should add the mobile One Card to their device to continue accessing locked and gated entrances on their phones.
