Your SUNYCard acts as a debit card to make photocopies or purchases on vending machines, borrow library materials from the University Library and serves as a bus pass for the UAlbany bus. Your SUNYCard also enables you to ride the CDTA buses for free. Among other uses you may also cash checks with your SUNYCard.

All School of Public Health students may access the Wadsworth Center from 8:00am – 5:00pm, Monday to Friday with a valid SUNYCard to attend classes and seminars.

SUNYCards may be obtained at the SUNYCard Office or by uploading your photo and retrieving your SUNYCard at orientation. The SUNYCard Office is located in the basement of the Campus Center building, room B52,  located on the Uptown Campus. You will need to present a photo ID card and proof of matriculation when you apply for a SUNYCard, which will then be issued immediately.
