Using Your DragonCard

About your DragonCard

The DragonCard is the official University ID card for students, faculty, and staff, which also provides access to many buildings and services on the three Drexel University campuses.

The DragonCard must be carried at all times while on University-owned property. It is property of Drexel University and is governed by the rules and regulations set forth by the University. The DragonCard is not transferable and is not permitted to be used by anyone other than the issued cardholder. Please refer to the Student Handbook for additional information regarding DragonCard policies.

Caring for the DragonCard

It is important to take care of the DragonCard in order for it to work properly. Do not punch holes or deface the card in anyway. Doing so will destroy the proximity chip located inside the card which allows for access to most campus buildings. Store the DragonCard in a secure location that is away from other magnetic cards that may deactivate the ID card.
