Concordia University St. Paul students, staff, and faculty all receive an official Concordia University Identification Badge, referred to as your Comet Card, when they start their time here. This card serves as a multi-use tool that not only acts as your official ID on campus, but also serves as a key card, debit card for food services, library card, and allows users to access university printers.
The Card Services office is part of the Concordia University Security Department, and manages the card production, and access system on campus. Our office is open Monday-Friday, 8am-4:30pm.
Comet Card Functions
University identification cards are issued to each student, staff, and faculty member when they begin their time at Concordia. This card, referred to as your Comet Card, serves as your official ID when on campus. You may be asked to show it to prove your ID in various offices on campus. Additionally the card has your student or staff identification number (L#) on the back.
If your card breaks, or gets lost please contact the Card Services office for a replacement.
Comet Cards also serve as key cards for numerous places on campus, such as:
- Residence Halls & Rooms
- Offices, Conference Rooms
- Classrooms, Studios, Labs
- Game Rooms & Gym Facilities
Access for students outside of their regular access (such as team locker rooms, labs or studios for classes, or offices for campus employment) is requested by their supervisor, professor, or coach using our access list system.
Access for staff and faculty is requested by their supervisor utilizing this Card and Key Request form.
For questions about, or troubleshooting of access please contact Card Services.
Our campus dining partner, Sodexo, uses the Comet Card to serve as a debit card for their meal plan and flex dollar system. Students, staff, and faculty can purchase meal plans, or dining dollars to use in both of our campus dining locations.
To learn more about the plans, and how to add them to your card you can visit their website here.
If you have any questions regarding the meal plans offeredcontact Alaine Scoles in the Dining Hall offices (651) 641-8275 or e-mail.
Just like Arthur said, “Fun isn’t hard with a library card!” Your Comet card also serves as your university library card, allowing you to check out materials from the library and access a wide-array of online resources.
