Cajun Card Services

Your Cajun Card is your key to campus life.

Your Cajun Card is the key to accessing many of the services and opportunities on campus. Your card serves as your campus ID, your access card to the library, fitness center, and other recreational facilities as well as restricted areas of campus such as labs, classrooms, and residence halls. You can use it to make purchases at the campus bookstore, vending machines, and other on/off campus dining options via Cajun Cash.

Getting your Cajun Card is easy - just stop by our office. All you need to do is present your picture ID and Ragin' Cajun spirit, and you'll be set.

Building and Parking Pass

Some areas on campus (buildings, rooms, parking, etc.) are locked and only allow access to those assigned. Your Cajun Card will grant you access to those areas assigned to you. Access is assigned by those in charge of the area. If your access/card stops working, please come to the Cajun Card office.
