The Pioneer ID Card is your official identification while at the University of Denver. All DU constituents including students, faculty, staff and are REQUIRED to carry their ID card while on campus. Due to social distancing requirements, contact tracing and COVID-19 safety measures, access to all campus buildings and facilities are locked and require a Pioneer ID Card to enter. Pioneer ID Office has modified our processes and operations to ensure the safety of students, faculty, and staff.  Below are key points about obtaining your DU Pioneer ID Card as well as updates regarding ID Office operations.

Do not hole-punch your DU ID Card - the entire card is a computer chip and will cease to function if hole punched, cut, or damaged.

If you have an ID Card but it is not working to help you access buildings, you should
