UMass Lowell will resume on-campus instruction, research and campus life for Fall 2020. View the plan for more info.


Your UMass Lowell UCard gives you access to everything you need as a student, faculty and staff member of the university.

New Student UCards

New students submit a photo using our photo submission app that can be found on the Upload UCard Photo and Guidelines webpage. Students will receive information on how to pick up their UCard prior to the start of the fall semester. 

On-Campus Personnel: UCards Available by Appointment

With UCAPS being remote, new and replacement UCards are by appointment only by contacting UCAPS by e-mail at or by phone at 978-934-2800. Cards can only be printed on Tuesday and Thursday, and will be able to be picked up at University Police 24 hours a day once you have been notified it is ready. UCards cannot be mailed and will not be printed unless personnel are approved to be on campus for critical research, essential operations, or on-campus housing.
