Your Official University of Alberta Identification Card

ONEcard Services has moved online, and our in-person office (Infolink ONEcard Service Centre in HUB Mall) is closed.

Please contact us at with any questions. This inbox is regularly monitored on business days.

ONEcard is an on-campus card and is not mailed to students who are enrolled in online classes. Photos submitted through our online site may be approved during campus building closures, but this does not mean you are eligible to pick up a card. Please check the UAlberta COVID-19 (novel Coronavirus) Information for updates on building closures and upcoming academic terms.

Please note, this request form is for urgent requests for current residents or staff. All other requests should wait until campus buildings are reopened.

  • Wait for your email confirmation on when/where to pick up your ONEcard
    (cards are typically available the following business day)
