Pioneer ID Card


The Pioneer ID Card is your official identification while attending the University of Denver. All students are required to carry the ID card while on campus. The Pioneer ID Card allows you to access your Residence Hall, Anderson Academic Commons, the Ritchie Center, the Law Library, parking lots, and several academic buildings throughout campus. The Pioneer ID Card also functions as a transaction card for Meal Plans and the Flex Account. The card allows students to purchase discounted tickets to DU entertainment and sporting events, such as hockey games and theater productions.
