All students should obtain a student ID, also called a Hawk Card. Your Hawk Card allows you to take advantage of University of Hartford services with the ease of not carrying cash. You can use it to make purchases by using Hawk Cash, Dining Dollars or Meal Plan meals at any dining facility on campus. You can use your Hawk Cash at the bookstore, vending machines, laundry machines, and with selected merchants off campus. Your Hawk Card is also used for access to residence halls and selected labs.
The student ID office is located in the basement of the Gengras Student Union, in room 135. The office hours during the academic year are Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and on Fridays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The office is open extended hours at the beginning of each semester. Summer hours are limited; please call the ID office for summer hours.
Full-time undergraduate students will receive their University of Hartford IDs as part of the orientation program.
Graduate and part-time students, to obtain an ID, you must present proof of registration and an additional form of ID such as a license. Processing a student ID is typically very quick, about 5 minutes if there is no line, but lines are long at the start of the year. There is no charge for the ID, but there is a replacement charge if it is lost.
