Your Cajun Card will be the most important thing in your wallet during your time at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.

First and foremost, your Cajun Card serves as your student ID. With your Cajun Card, you can take advantage of all the opportunities and resources that the university has to offer. Your first card is free, while replacements are $25.00.

So don't forget to keep your Cajun Card in your wallet and use it to get the most out of your time at UL Lafayette!

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.
