Identification (ID) cards are the property of Harvard University and are intended for University purposes only. ID cards are required for admission to most Harvard activities and facilities, including libraries, museums, dining halls, athletic buildings and student residences. Some facilities may also require a sticker for entry. The front of the card and the magnetic strips on the back, however, must be kept free from stickers.
ID cards are not transferable; a student may not allow any other person to use his or her card for any purpose. Every student is responsible for his or her ID and the consequences of its misuse. A student who alters or falsifies his or her University identification card or produces or distributes false IDs of any kind is subject to disciplinary action. Students must show their identification cards or otherwise identify themselves upon request to any properly identified officer of the University.
Lost cards should be reported immediately to the Longwood ID office (677 Huntington Avenue). There is a charge of $25.00 for a lost student photo ID. HUID will waive any replacement charge for a stolen ID card if the student presents the ID office with a copy of a police report that lists the ID card as one of the stolen items. Otherwise the same charges apply as for lost cards. Students may submit a police report for a full term bill credit within 30 days. For more information, visit the Harvard ID cards site.
