Use Your DragonCard
The DragonCard is the official University ID card for students, faculty and professional staff and must always be carried while on any of the University's campuses. A DragonCard is used to:
- Access University buildings, including Drexel Residence Halls.
- Check out books and laptops from the Drexel Libraries, as well as print from computers and make copies.
- Use a Dining Plan at Drexel Campus Dining locations.
- Use DragonDollars to pay for food and services at participating dining and retail locations.
- Ride Drexel's Shuttle Bus Service.
Care for Your DragonCard
It is important to take care of your DragonCard for it to work properly.
- Do not punch holes in or deface your DragonCard. Your card contains a "smart" chip inside that grants access to campus buildings through electronic card readers.
- Store your DragonCard in a secure location, such as a wallet or handbag and away from other magnetic cards that may deactivate the card.
- Lanyards and other cardholders are often helpful – Barnes & Noble at Drexel University locations have a variety of options.
