Starting today, members of the UConn community can vote on their favorite design for the new University identification card, which will replace the current card over the coming academic year.
People will need their Net ID to cast their vote, and the results will be updated live on the site so everyone can track which design is in the lead.
UConn is upgrading its Husky One Card system over the coming year, with all cards eventually replaced by cards that include updated security safeguards.
The cards are used at all UConn campus locations except UConn Health, which has a separate photo identification badge system.
UConn One Cards are used for everything from entering residence halls and labs to storing Husky Bucks for use at local vendors, accessing meal plans and dining halls, copying and printing, and getting the exemption from state sales tax allowed by law for food and beverage sales in UConn restaurants and cafes.
People can view large poster boards of each design choice all week at three locations on the UConn Storrs campus:
- On Monday and Tuesday, on the second floor of the Homer Babbidge Library.
- On Wednesday, inside the UConn Recreation facility.
- And on Thursday and Friday, at the entrance to the UConn Bookstore.
People at regional campuses can view them online on the One Card online voting site.
More information will be shared in coming months about the new cards, including the anticipated rollout dates and the processes by which people will be able to replace their current cards.
