Students

Newly admitted students and those who are currently registered for credits are eligible to obtain their UW ID cards (Husky Cards).

Obtaining a Husky Card

Eligible students, faculty & staff may obtain their Husky Card by visiting the Husky Hall Welcome Desk during walk-in service hours. You will need to have your UW student/employee ID number and U.S. state- or federally-issued photo identification with you (such as a driver's license or passport). We do not accept high school IDs.

Students who already have a Husky Card or who have previously submitted a photo are not eligible to submit another one through the online portal. If you'd like to take a new photo you may visit the Husky Hall Welcome Desk or contact uwbinfo@uw.edu for assistance.
