Student & Faculty ID

Each currently enrolled student and employed faculty member will be issued an ID card.

Your ID card serves as proof of your status with the Academy and provides access to many resources provided by the university. These include dining hall meals, access to buildings and residence halls, use of the libraries and athletic facilities, and a debit program for certain purchases.

No one other than you is to use your ID card. The card is the property of the Academy and must be presented upon the request of an appropriate university official and may be revoked at any time by the University.

Reporting a Lost or Stolen Card

If you’ve lost your ID card, please report it as soon as possible. Placing a card on “lost” status protects you by de-activating the associated ID card privileges and funds.

Report a stolen card to Academy of Art University Campus Safety Department either in person at 180 New Montgomery Street B-83 during normal building hours or by calling 1-415-618-3911 at any time.

Once the card is reported as lost, it cannot be used by anyone until it is re-activated or is replaced by a newly printed card.

Replacing a Missing or Damaged ID Card

You can get a replacement ID card from the Academy Comm Center at 180 New Montgomery Street B-83 during normal building hours.

The process of obtaining a new ID card will include disabling other card(s) which you may have been issued.

If the most recently issued ID card becomes unusable due to normal wear and tear, it will be replaced at no charge.

If an ID card is stolen along with other valuables, it will be replaced at no charge with an accompanying police report from a valid police agency.
