Monday - Friday 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Northwestern University’s multiple purpose one-card program, Wildcard, was developed to provide better identification for members of the University community, simplify use of existing services, control access, reduce handling of cash, and enhance security. The Wildcard office’s purpose is to enable students, faculty, staff, and other members of the University community to obtain and use a Wildcard.

  • Come to the Wildcard office to get or replace your Wildcard, or for related services.
  • For a comprehensive list of discounts available by using your Wildcard, visit the Wildcard Advantage website.
