Blaze's ONE CardAt UAB, your student ID is known as your "ONE Card." It acts not only as identification, but also as a physical key for building or parking deck access, a declining balance card, a library card, and more.

We know that not every photo ID is going to be your favorite, so at UAB we allow you to submit your photo ahead of time. If you submit your photo and it is approved at least one week before you attend your scheduled Orientation session, your card will be ready to pick up at the end of the day that you attend orientation on campus. To be approved, your photo must meet the following requirements:


Some benefits of your ONE Card:

  • admission to UAB athletic and cultural events, the Campus Rec Center, and UAB libraries
  • discounts on software purchases and tickets to a variety of on- and off-campus events
  • access to intramural sports, career fairs, and other UAB activities
  • entry at your residence hall (physical security doors, elevators, etc.)

Your ONE Card also functions as a declining-balance card for purchases around campus and even around town:

  • all campus restaurant locations
  • the UAB Bookstore
  • the UAB Ticket Office
  • residence hall laundry facilities
  • UAB ePrint locations
  • many local area restaurants, food trucks, and retail establishments

You and/or your parents can make online deposits into your ONE Card BlazerBucks account, and the money will be available that same day. There’s really no need to carry cash – your ONE Card is both safe and convenient.
