Mark your calendars for Monday, March 17!  The new photo ID Card (now known as the UCard) will be available for pick-up to all part-time and full-time students at the UNB Card Office located in the SUB (room 106).

It’s FREE to get your new UCard.

Just bring your old ID card with you to swap it for your new UCard.

Why do I need a new card?

Your new UCard contains new contactless technology not found in your existing card that is used for speedy tap & go transactions at Tim Hortons and the UCard PHIL station (more locations to come), secure door access (coming soon), and more. Your new UCard also has a new design and enhanced security features, including a unique UCard hologram.

When can I pick up my new UCard?

For your convenience, the UNB Card Office will be open extended hours including over lunch hour (12 p.m. – 1 p.m.) during the week of the re-card.

  • March 17-19: open 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. (open during lunch hour)
  • March 20-21: open 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. (open during lunch hour)

The UNB Card Office is working hard to make sure the re-card goes as quickly and easily for you as possible. Your new UCards are currently being pre-printed, so all you have to do is come in to the Card Office, swap your old ID card for your new UCard and start using it right away.

There is no charge to get your new UCard.

We’re also working on some great prizes and giveaways for the first week of the re-carding (March 17 – 21), so you won’t want to miss out!

What if I don’t have my old ID card to swap?

To keep the line moving as quickly as possible, we are only swapping ID cards for the first week of the re-card. If you don’t have your old ID to swap, you will have wait until March 24 to get your new UCard. There will be no charge for you to get your new UCard if you do not have your old ID to swap.

Will my services, access, meal plan and UCard Cash be on my new UCard?

Yes. Your new UCard can be used to access all of the services you had on your old ID card, including food purchases using UCard Cash (SUB Booster Juice, SUB Convenience Store and all Sodexo locations), Sodexo meal plans, Sodexo meal plan cash, printing, gym access, and more.

When can I start using my new UCard?

Right away! As soon as your new UCard is in your hands, you will be able to use the new tap & go technology for even speedier purchases at Tim Hortons and deposits at the UCard PHIL station, with other locations still to come.

Can I still deposit money on my UCard at the Card Office during the re-card (March 17-21)?

The UNB Card Office will still be accepting deposits the week of the re-card (March 17-21); however, for your convenience, we recommend making your deposits using UCard Online (via the myUNB Portal) or the PHIL station (located at the HIL) during this time.
