First, suspend your UCard!
If your card is lost or stolen you should suspend your card immediately! To suspend your debit account at any time, log in to GET Funds and click on the "I Lost My Card" link under the "Quick Links" menu. Then click the "Report My Lost Card" button. During normal business hours you may also suspend your card over the phone by calling the UCard Office at (413) 545-0197.
If you live in campus housing you must also contact the Housing Card Office at (413) 545-0194 during normal business hours, or (413) 545-0812 outside of normal business hours to suspend your residential door access privileges.
How do I get a replacement card?
You should purchase a replacement UCard if yours has been lost or stolen.
If I can't get a replacement right now, can I get a temporary card?
There are two types of temporary cards that a student can get if their card has been lost or stolen: a temporary meal card to eat at the dining halls, and a tempoary door access card to access their on-campus residence.
Temporary Meal Card
To get a temporary meal card, go to the Meal Plan Office during their normal business hours. Assuming that you have enough meals on your meal plan, they will transfer 6 meals to your temporary card. These 6 meals can only be used at the dining commons, not at any retail dining outlets. The card is disposable and should be destroyed after you've used your 6 meals. Even if you find your card or get a replacment, be sure to use up the meals on your temporary card first, as they will not be transferred back to your UCard.
In an emergency, if you cannot find your UCard and the Meal Plan Office is closed, you can still go to the dining commons. They will allow you to eat after they have verified your identity and confirmed that you have a meal plan.
Temporary Door Access Card
To sign out a temporary door access card, go to the Residential Service Desk for your residential area. The card will normally be programmed to work for two days. You need to return the card to your residential service desk at the end of that time period, or you will be assessed a fee by Residential Life.
Reporting a Card Found
If you find your card and need to reactivate it, log in to GET Funds and click on the "I Found My Card" link under the "Quick Links" menu. Then click the "Report My Found Card" button. During normal business hours you may also suspend your card by bringing it in person to the UCard Office (Whitmore Administration Building, Room 168). We cannot reinstate UCards over the phone. Also, we can only reinstate your current card. If you find an older UCard that you had replaced, please destroy it, as it can never again work in our system.
If you live in campus housing and have contacted them to turn off your door access privileges, you will need to contact them again at (413) 545-0194 during normal business hours, or (413) 545-0812 outside of normal business hours to reinstate your residential door access privileges.
