Identification Cards

The technology coordinator's office, located behind the technology center in Centennial Hall, is responsible for the issuance of Bluffton University identification cards.

All Bluffton faculty, staff, and students MUST have an identification card. This card will allow you: 
  • access to Musselman Library and Ohio Link resources
  • access to meal plans for eating in the Marbeck Commons
  • access to the Fitness Center in the Sommer Center
  • use of "beaver bucks" in Bob's Place, located in Marbeck (NOTE: beaver bucks can be added to your card anytime at the cashier's window at the business office, located in College Hall)
  • admission to Bluffton University events free of charge
  • discounts at various merchants and restaurants in Bluffton and surrounding communities

Future benefits may include such items as debit capabilities and building access.

Procedures for obtaining a Photo ID card

University photo ID cards will be printed by the technology center staff, between the hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. No appointment is necessary. Persons needing an ID card should go to the technology center front desk. Students will be billed by the business office for lost cards. Cards that no longer function due to wear, damage or other reasons will be replaced without charge as long as the non-working ID card is returned at the time of printing.
