More then an access Card


New Cougar Card

Elevate the student experience by providing a modern, integrated and extensive card program that will improve flexibility and security across the UH System.

Implementing a smart card that supports the various technological platforms in the market.

Distribution of the new smart card will continue at various stages during the COVID19 pandemic.



Non-residential students cards were being mailed prior to the campus closure. Once we re-open we will restart this project in conjunction with campus delivery services. 

Faculty/staff and special program cards have been received; the cougar card office will work with central campus departmental contacts to distribute these cards. Once we re-open we will begin this process.

We are currently open by appointment only to provide cards to designated essential staff. Visit for the Cougar Card appointment calendar – Monday 11 am – 3 pm.
