If you are unable to meet with the U-Pass staff during orientation, you can order a U-Pass through a security supervisor at the 3rd Floor Security Office (315 S. Plymouth Court Building).

If your U-Pass is lost or stolen you will need to bring your student ID and $50 (check or cash) to the 3rd Floor Security Office (315 S. Plymouth Court Building). Hours are 7 a.m.-11 p.m.
