Community members are required to have their MICARD with them when on campus as it must be displayed when entering campus buildings
The Department of Campus Safety issues MICARDs. MICARDs are not only for identification purposes, but also serve as an electronic "key" for access to campus buildings and rooms to which the holder is authorized, a debit card for campus spending, and a MICA library card. Access permissions will be established based on an individual's employment/enrollment status, residential status (for students in residence halls), and as approved by department chairs to access space over which they have authority.
There is no charge for the first MICARD. Staff and returning students are requested to retain their current identification cards, which will be validated at the Campus Safety office at the beginning of each semester.
Students living in residence facilities receive a color-coded MICARD valid for one year only. Students moving into or returning to a
MICARD identification cards may be obtained from the Campus Safety office, located at in the Health & Wellness Center at 1501 W Mount Royal Avenue, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
To better accommodate those enrolled in night and weekend classes, Campus Safety extends its office hours for the first two weeks of each semester; call 410-225-2355 for current extended hours.
Community members who lose their MICARD, or from whom their MICARD has been stolen, must report the loss to Campus Safety. Replacement
If a community member's MICARD becomes defective or is damaged through normal use, it may be replaced free of charge.
