New OneCard Design

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 many locations, including all dining locations on campus, at the NIU Recreation Center and at campus laundry facilities. This new feature is expected to be available at all locations where the OneCard is accepted by fall 2023.
