Rutgers ID Cards

Whenever students are on campus, their Rutgers ID Card must be on their person and readily available. Generally, a Rutgers ID Card provides access to services such as:

  • Attendance verification 
  • Events 
  • Checkout privileges at Rutgers University Libraries 
  • Computer labs and printing services 
  • Recreation centers 
  • Purchased meal plans and debit account options 
  • Assigned housing and other University building access 

Incoming Fall 2022 Camden Students are required to submit a photo of themselves online through the “Online Photo Submission” website. Students can obtain the Rutgers ID card from the IMPACT Booth in the Main Lobby of the Campus Center, once available.

Incoming Fall 2022 Newark Students assigned to residence halls will receive their RUID card at residence check-in or via mail.  If you have not received your card and need to request one, please make an appointment to pick up on-campus by clicking the link here.

Incoming Fall 2022 Rutgers-New Brunswick Students (first year, transfer, graduate) should use the ID Card Pickup Tool to determine where and how to pick up their ID card. Before doing so, students must upload a photo.

All other students interested in obtaining an RU ID card, or receiving an ID card after uploading a photo, please visit

Please report lost Rutgers ID Cards to Identity and Access Management.
