CrimsonCard: Your key to campus

The IU CrimsonCard can do a lot more for you than just to be your student ID


Jamie Krueger, Staff Reporter

College can be a difficult transition for new students, but your CrimsonCard has made it easier. 

Your CrimsonCard is quite literally your key to campus! It is the official photo ID card for all Indiana University campuses. This card provides access to essential university services, including printing, meal plans, libraries and secure entry to campus buildings like residence halls, offices and recreational facilities. 

It can also be used as a debit card! Students have the ability to deposit however much money they would like, and are able to use it at several locations across campus and at select off-campus locations in the surrounding area. Here are all the CrimsonCard discounts and benefits!
