Getting UCards, Temporary Cards, and Using GET My ID (Your UCard Photo on Your Phone)

July 1, 2020

Due the ongoing COVID-19 situation, UCard Office staff continue to work remotely from home, with a staff member coming on campus once a week to issue new and replacement UCards on a "by appointment" basis.  Anyone needing a new or replacment UCard should contact the UCard about scheduling an appointment
 
For those customers that need card-related services while they wait to receive their new or replacement UCard, there are several types of temporary cards that people should be aware of:

  • For door access to non-residential buildings, customers should contact the Faciities and Campus Services at https://www.umass.edu/facilities/requests about getting a temporary door access card.
  • For door acces to residential buildings, customers should contact the appropriate Residential Life Service Desk https://www.umass.edu/living/residence/rsd about getting a temporary door access card.
  • For access to meal plans, customers should contact the Meal Plan Office (mealplan@umass.edu) about getting a temporary meal plan card.

 
To maintain safety and proper social distancing, Dining Services is currently restricting access to dining areas to UMass students and employees only.  To gain entrance to the dining areas, you can either show your UCard, or you can show them your UCard photo via GET My ID in the get app.  Please note that the latter solution should only be used if and while you are waiting to get a replacement UCard.  It is not a long-term solution.
 
Installing and using GET My ID is pretty straightforward:

  1. If you haven't already, install the GET app to your iOS or Android phone (see other announcement on this page about how to do this.)
  2. Login into the GET app
  3. When you've successfully logged in, click on the "Scan Card" link under your photo, to blow up the photo.

Contact the UCard Office at ucard@admin.umass.edu or (413) 545-0197 if you run into any difficultes with installing/using GET, or any other ucard-related questions or concerns.
 
Thank you!
