What Is Your Western ONECard?

 Your Western ONECard is more than just a Photo ID Card. The Western ONECard functions as an identification card for exams and bus pass; is your library card; your meal plan card; and can be used for door access and vending machine purchases.  It is also required to access Campus Recreation and to pick up a parking permit or keys.

Where and When to Pick Up Your Western ONECard

Students Living in Residence
If you upload your photo by August 2nd, you will receive your Western ONECard with your residence move-in package. You will be required to show GOVERNMENT-ISSUED PHOTO IDENTIFICATION when you pick up your card.

If you uploaded your photo and government-issued photo ID late, after August 2, we will do our best to have your card ready in time to be included in your move-in package but there are no guarantees.  Check with your residence first to see if your card is available when you move in and, if not, proceed to the Western Student Services for pickup during regular business hours.

Students Living Off-Campus in London
If you uploaded your photo and government-issued photo ID by August 2, you can pick up your Western ONECard in the Mustang Lounge beginning August 31.
