The K-State ID Center is located on the Union's ground floor.
All students, faculty and staff get their Wildcat Cards at the K-State ID Center. Your Wildcat Card is your official university ID and can be used as a:
- Photo ID
- Access/Entry Card
- Computer Lab Printing Card
- Library Card
- Cat Cash On-Campus Debit Account
- Meal Plan Debit Card
To ensure a long life for your card, please do not mark on or bend your card, punch holes in your card, place stickers on your card or scratch the magnetic strip. If your ID is lost or stolen, report it immediately to the K-State ID Center. Lost or stolen cards can be flagged to prevent further use. The Union is not liable for losses incurred by individuals due to stolen Wildcat Cards. There is a $20 fee for the replacement of a Wildcat Card.
