Names On Redesigned Husky Cards

Beginning today, April 2, 2018, all University of Washington students and employees will have the option to change the name currently listed on their Husky Card, which is also being redesigned with a new look.

The UW ID Center is offering free card exchanges from April 2 through June 1 to those who would like to change the name listed. After this limited time waiver period, the standard $25 replacement fee for name change reprints of Husky Cards will be in effect.

Exchanging Your Husky Card

If you would like to receive an updated card, the office firsts asks to update your name on identity.uw.edu. After two business days, UW students and employees who already have a Husky Card can visit one of our ID Center locations to exchange their card. Your current, active Husky Card must be turned in to receive a replacement during and after the waiver period.

U-PASS holders should allow 24-48 hours for their new card to begin working on transit.
