The Many Uses of SUNYCard

Years ago, a UA ID card served little more than to confirm your current student status at the University. Nowadays, we have the SUNYCard, which serves many more functions for a UA student than mere identification.

With the SUNYCard, a student has access to campus buildings and public transportation, ability to obtain meals and food, and in some cases the SUNYCard works like a debit card – even off campus.

Your SUNYCard functions as your library card as well. With it you can check out books, swipe to pay for library print jobs and photocopies, and use the bar code number to establish an Interlibrary Loan/Document Delivery account.

The Dewey Library has a Podium terminal where you can add money to your SUNYCard. It is located in the hallway across from the public rest room. In addition you can add money to the SUNYCard online here.

The bottom line: it is important to carry your SUNYCard at all times!
