PolyCard is the Cal Poly campus identification card. You can use your PolyCard for dining plans use, library services, campus events, free SLO city bus rides, and pay for printing (printing locations: Library Labs, Departmental Labs, and University Union).

Getting Started

To get a new PolyCard, visit the ITS Service Desk in Building 46 (the Natatorium near Spanos Stadium). You will need to provide approved identification (such as a driver's license or passport). Some special events, such as SOAR, may have special PolyCard picture venues near check-in stations.
