The Iowa One® Card
The Iowa One® Card is the official identification card of The University of Iowa.
Your digitized photo image is printed here on the card. The photo image is stored in a high security confidential database and is not accessible to the university community or external organizations or agencies.
A picture is mandatory in order to receive an Iowa One® Card. Photos must be an unobstructed, front view of the full face that is a representation of the true appearance of the card holder. No facial or hand gestures or foreign objects are to be included in the photo. Hats, sunglasses, bandannas, and any other clothing that might obstruct the view of the face may not be worn. All headwear must be removed, unless worn for valid religious, cultural, or medical reasons. No picture retakes are allowed unless the picture is unusable due to closed eyes or other unforeseen problems.
Your name will appear on your card as it does in current University of Iowa records. If there are any changes or discrepancies in your name and you have already been issued an Iowa One® Card , you will need to obtain a replacement. Students requiring a name change should go to the Registrar's Service Center, (8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) 17 Calvin Hall, with the appropriate documentation. Faculty/Staff who are not current or former students should logon to Employee Self Service, to update their name. There is no charge for any new card issued due to a name change.
NOTE: Please allow 1-2 business days for the name change to reach the Iowa One® Card system.
Your primary university classification will appear here on the ID card. Classifications include Student, Faculty/Staff, and Affiliate.
The back of your Iowa One® Card has a gold magnetic stripe. This stripe is used exclusively for UI Campus locations.
When swiped, the information on the gold magnetic stripe links to your record on the Iowa One® Card System; the ID Card System verifies your ability to charge as well as your academic or employment standing when status is required (for example, to receive a student or faculty/staff discount).
Holes should not be punched in either magnetic stripe. Close proximity to magnetic fields (TV,s, stereos, microwaves, computers) may decode the magnetic stripe on the back of the card). Do not affix any item to the magnetic stripes. To help protect the magnetic stripes from scratches and wear, Cards should be carried in a protective holder or wallet.
If your card is lost or stolen during routine business hours, notify the Iowa One® Card Center located in 3 Jessup Hall, 335-2716. You may also contact us by email at LostID@uiowa.edu. Please include your name, University ID number, and a phone number where we can reach you in the body of the message.
If you suspect the theft and/or unauthorized use of this card, report this to Department of Public Safety.
When scanned, the information stored in the barcode links to your record on the Iowa One® Card System; the system verifies your ability to charge as well as your academic or employment standing when status is required (for example, to receive a student or faculty/staff discount).
