UMass Lowell will resume on-campus instruction, research and campus life for Fall 2020. View the plan for more info.
Your UCard's primary function, aside from an identification card, is to provide you electronic card access to the over 1600 card readers across campus using a secure smart card (often called "prox") chip inside the card. Various default access is provided based on your status at the University, your residence hall, academic college or major, and type of decal you purchased / ordered.
All faculty, staff and students must carry their UCard with them at all times and immediately surrender their UCard upon request by an authorized University / city official such as Police, Administration, Residence Life Staff, etc. Altering, improperly possessing, or lending a University Identification Card to another person for any reason not expressly authorized by the University is strictly prohibited. A University Identification Card falling into any of these categories may be confiscated by any student, staff or faculty member in the course of his/her charged work responsibility.
