The Logger Card is the official University of Puget Sound ID card. It is the cardholder’s “proof” of affiliation with the university. The card allows access to various privileges at the university. The card may also give the cardholder access to optional services, including campus meal plans, packages at mail services and the bookstore.
All Puget Sound students, employees, and qualifying university affiliates are eligible for a Logger Card. The Dining Services Office also produces specialized dining charge cards for various departments. ID Cards are not available for courtesy affiliates, visitors, vendors, alumni or spouses of university affiliates. Only the person pictured on the card is authorized to use the card to make purchases or conduct other business on it. Logger Card clients are issued only one identification card. Duplicate Logger Cards must be surrendered to authorized personnel upon request for proper destruction.
Account balance information will only be released to the account holder. Parents of the affiliate cannot request account information without consent from the student.
Lost, stolen, or misplaced cards must be reported immediately to Security Services at 253.879.3311. To obtain a replacement card, go to the Dining Services Office (WSC 001) during business hours. There is a $15 charge for a reprint of a lost or stolen Logger Card.
Dining and Conference Services will hold all lost/stolen cards returned to the department for 90 days. After that period, no lost/stolen Logger Cards will be returned to clients.

If you are concerned about your card's security; you may request a “hold” on your account (until you determine your card is lost or stolen) at the Dining Services Office (WSC 001) during business hours. If you are unable to find your card, you may report it as “lost" which will deactivate your meal plan and bookstore dollars immediately. Once deactivation occurs, you must obtain a new card to access your privileges.

At the time of replacement, the old card must be surrendered to the university. Card holders may only possess one Logger Card. Card holders may choose to reuse their old picture on the new card, or have a new picture taken at the time of replacement.

A valid card must be presented at the time of purchase.

Every three years a group of Puget Sound students ventures out into the world for nine months of rigorous academic and personal inquiry. Visiting eight Asian nations, the group engages in a vast multicultural experience that forces them to confront novel systems of culture, economics, politics, religion, and philosophy. The course of study for the program begins on campus well before the group departs for Asia--each student is required to take three prerequisites before the year abroad.
