Help Desk - I need my Campus/Photo ID number
Campus faculty, staff, students, and applicants can obtain their UW Photo ID number in the following ways.
UW Faculty, Staff, Students
Faculty, staff, and students must go to the Photo ID office to obtain their ID number. Note: The Photo ID office will not give out any information over the phone. You must go there in person with a valid form of photo identification to obtain a campus ID number or campus ID.
See http://www.wiscard.wisc.edu/contact.html for details.
If you are an off-campus student and need assistance with your campus ID number, please contact the Office of the Registrar at (608) 262-3811 for assistance. Normal business hours are: Monday-Friday, 7:45 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. (excluding holidays).
If you are an off-campus employee, please contact the DoIT Help Desk for additional assistance. Get Help from DoIT
Applicants should have received a letter from the Admissions Office or an email titled "UW-Madison Application Confirmation", providing their UW Campus ID number. If an applicant needs their Campus ID number, please contact the appropriate Admissions office.
- Undergraduate Admissions - 608-262-3961
- Graduate Admissions - 608-262-2433
Additionally, Graduate Applicants may also log into their online application and scroll to the bottom of the page to obtain their Campus ID number.
Hospital employees who are not UW faculty, staff, or students use their NetIDs to apply for parking only.
If your NetID password needs to be reset and you have forgotten your campus ID number for verification, please contact the hospital parking coordinators at 263-7943. Please inform them that you need your UW ID number. You may then call the Help Desk to have your password reset.
Note: Hospital staff can visit the HSLC DoIT Service Desk site (Located in the HSLC Bookstore) or any DoIT Service Desk for password changes. This is a great alternative for when you do not have your Campus ID. We can verify your identity using a driver's license or other official photo ID.
Most alumni request their Campus ID in order to access transcript data. Alumni can use My Info to access much of their former student data. If you need access to My Info and don't remember your Campus ID or PIN, you can go to My Info and click the link labeled 'Forgot Campus ID or Pin?'. You will then be able to log into My Info after providing alternate information. This method will not directly provide you with your Campus ID number.
Lifelong Learners do not have CampusIDs.
- Internal Note: Although your Campus ID number is not explicitly listed anywhere in the Student Center, it is possible to recover it by beginning an official transcript order. After clicking on "Request official transcript" in the My Academics section of the Student Center and then "Begin Order" on the following page, your Campus ID number is automatically generated in the first field. This can be useful if an alumni needs his or her password reset by the Help Desk in order to access other Wisc services such as their email. Access Management Services will be looking for a better long-term solution.
