A UNC One Card is required of all admitted students at UNC-Chapel Hill. This card serves as your official ID card as long as you are a student here. Use it to access campus facilities and services provided by the Library, Student Health Service, and Physical Education and Intramural-Recreation; use it as a debit card for meal plans, expense accounts, photocopying, laundry, and some vending machines. If you are a newly admitted student, a summer visiting student, or a Classroom Studies student, you may obtain a One Card beginning May 12th for First Session and June 18th for Second Session. You must be registered to get a UNC One Card.

How to obtain. Know your PID, and take a photo ID (such as a license, a passport, or a military ID) to the UNC One Card Office (in the basement of the Daniels Building, Student Stores). During summer sessions the hours of operation are 7:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.

How to replace. If you lose or damage your UNC One Card or require a name change, go to the UNC One Card office for a replacement. The replacement fee is $10. Additional information can be found online ( or by telephone at (919) 962-8024.
