All Students, Faculty and Staff are given an LMU OneCard when arriving at LMU. This card is used as their ID Card as well as their Library card and Door Access Card. The first card is free – lost/stolen cards will incur a fee.
Once registered, students will come to the Campus Business Services office in the Von Der Ahe Building Lower Level to sign the OneCard Contract, have your picture taken and have your OneCard printed. Students currently holding an LMU OneCard who are not yet registered for classes or have dropped all classes, will have their OneCard suspended and unavailable for use in the OneCard system until registered for classes.
New faculty members will have their information sent to OneCard from HR. Faculty must have at least one class as showing scheduled by the Registrar's office in Banner. This generates the University ID number, which is mandatory for issuing an LMU OneCard. Other faculty must have a OneCard Authorization Form filled out and signed by a designated authorized HR representative and/or department director/chairperson/dean/manager etc.
All new staff (full or part-time; permanent or temporary) members will have their information sent to OneCard from HR. Other Staff must have a OneCard Authorization Form filled out and signed by a designated authorized HR representative, who also issues the LMU ID number.
LMU contract vendors (on or off-campus) must have the OneCard Authorization Form signed by the appropriate department director/V.P./manager who contracts them. The OneCard office will issue University ID Numbers for these vendors.
All others are reviewed on a case by case basis, with the appropriate department director/VP authorizing the reason for the card.
Obtaining a OneCard
All persons getting a OneCard for the first time must present a government issued photo ID, such as a driver's license or passport. To obtain your OneCard, come to the Campus Business Services office in the Von Der Ahe Building, lower level, and bring the OneCard Authorization Form if appropriate. You will sign the OneCard contract, present your ID, and have your picture taken. Your OneCard will normally be ready in about 5 minutes or less.
