The issuing and replacement of Mcards is handled by the Facilities Operations - University Unions and Events (UUE) team.

Background

In August 2018, the University updated the door access and Mcard system to offer better campus security and control of campus access.  Many faculty and staff upgraded their Mcards at that time, but some did not.  Since August 2018, only upgraded Mcards have been issued.  To confirm if you have an upgraded card, look to see if there is a key symbol to the right of your photo.  If your card has the key, then you already have the upgraded Mcard!

Do I need an upgraded Mcard?
