About The U Card

Your U Card is your official University of Minnesota ID.

Your U Card will give you access to different services on campus. Your U Card can also be used to access accounts that are attached to your U Card. Please see the ‘Accounts’ page for more details on which accounts you may have on your U Card (based on your role/status at the University).
