You are responsible for the Campus Card that has been issued to you.If your card is damaged and not working, a replacement card will need to be issued to you by the Campus Card Office. There is a $25 replacement fee for damaged cards.

The card is durable, but if not properly cared for, it is possible to damage the embedded antennae wiring, or chip within the card. The following tips will help to keep your Campus Card functioning properly:
