Deactivation & Replacement U Cards


  • Deactivating your U card will shut off any services (accounts, door access, etc.) on your U Card.
  • All of your door access and accounts will transfer over once you receive a replacement U Card.
  • Proximity Reader (Tap) door access can take up to 12 hours to transfer over.
  • Once a card has been deactivated it can never be reactivated.

Deactivate your U Card at the U Card Office in the Student Resource Center, by calling the U Card office at 507-258-8069.

Replacement U Cards

If you are currently eligible for a replacement U Card (please see eligibility page) you may be subject to a $30 replacement fee. If your U Card was stolen and you can provide us with a police report number, or you U Card is 5+ years old, we will waive the replacement fee.

Digital photos are taken as part of the card issuance process. A new photo will be taken each time a replacement U Card is issued for security purposes.

Remember to bring a valid form of ID.
