Students, faculty and staff were asked to vote on an updated design for the NIU OneCard and the votes have been tallied.
The new OneCard comes with the new feature of Near Field Communication technology. Rather than having to swipe your OneCard, you will now be able to tap your OneCard at all dining locations on campus, the NIU Recreation Center, and campus laundry facilities. In addition to the above locations, this new feature is expected to be rolled out to other locations where the OneCard is accepted by fall 2023.
Distribution of the new OneCard will happen in phases. Please watch your NIU campus email for more information regarding when you are eligible to receive a new OneCard.
Faculty and staff
More information will be available in fall 2022.
Please Note: Due to a national chip shortage, there is a delay in the arrival of our new card stock. We are no longer able to offer the option to purchase the new OneCard to returning students, faculty and staff at this time.
As a courtesy, individuals that have purchased a card, as a result of an old card being lost, damaged or stolen, can replace their OneCard for free when additional card stock becomes available. Eligible students will be notified at that time. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
