Get your ONE Card

When you arrive for Goin’ Green New Student Orientation, one of the first things you’ll do is take your picture and get your ONE Card. (Submit your photo ahead of time at the ONE Card Photo Submission Website.) It’s your official UAB student ID card and your key to a lot of university functions and services:

  • 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
  • Access to 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:

  • the UAB ticket office
  • Barnes & Noble at UAB
  • all campus restaurant locations
  • residence hall laundry facilities
  • UAB ePrint locations
  • many local area restaurants 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. And pretty, what with your smiling mug right there on the front.
