UNH ID cards are provided by the Dining ID Office for students who have paid the UNH mandatory fees and for benefits eligible and adjunct faculty/staff. Your ID card is used for identification purposes on campus and is used for conducting transactions of the University of New Hampshire business and more. There are no fees for your initial ID card.

Getting Your First ID Card:

Congratulations on becoming a Wildcat! We look forward to you joining us here in Durham and beginning your UNH experience. One critical asset needed for your daily life on campus will be your UNH ID card. It will help you enter your residence hall, check out materials from the library, access your dining accounts and many other facets of UNH life. We want to make it easy for you to get your ID.

UNH has implemented a new process for creating student IDs. Because there was no in-person orientation this year, we are using a mobile photo upload process to collect images for IDs. A message has been sent from Online Photo to your e-mail address. Not having an ID on the 1st day will make for an unpleasant experience- no easy dorm access or dining hall access are just two of the issues.

Please upload your photo ASAP to have your ID waiting when you arrive on campus. If you have not received an invitation to upload, check your SPAM mail. If that fails please e-mail ID.Office@unh.edu for help.

Why You Need a UNH ID Card:

Your UNH ID card is important to the campus. It allows you to get check out books at the library, gives you access to the fitness center, and gets you into your dorm. Your ID card is also used for Dining Dollar and Cat's Cache purchases as it holds the fund balances and works like a debit card. Here is a list of the many different ways you can use your UNH ID card!



Lost ID Card/Protecting Yourself:

Replacing your ID card is of no charge if due to normal wear and tear as determined by the Dining ID Office. If you misplace your ID card, we recommend that you suspend activity immediately by contacting the Dining/ID Office at (603)862-1821.  Then fill out an online form to request a replacement and we will call or email you when your new ID is ready for pick up at the Dining ID Office.

Only balances of meals, Dining Dollars, Cat's Cache and guest passes on the card at the time it is suspended can be protected. No temporary cards will be issued. Until your ID card is replaced, you will not have access to your balances of any funds. Anytime meal plan holders can still access the dining halls using the hand scanners and typing in their student id number.

The owner of the ID card is responsible for its security and proper use and subject to a $25 fine for its unauthorized use.
