ID Cards get an (almost) space age upgrade.

They may look the same, but the new student id cards issued this week are very different on the inside.

The new cards are set up to be used by a proximity readers rather than magnetic swipe readers, making getting into building after hours just that little bit easier. They also come with a computer chip inside, enabling the University to use “smart card” systems, if necessary, in the future.

If you haven’t already picked up your card, you can do so within the next two weeks from the third floor foyer of the Murphy Building. Unfortunately, there’s no getting rid of that unflattering first year photo.
