Logger Card Policies and Procedures


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.


Disclosure of Account Information

Account balance information will only be released to the account holder. Parents of the affiliate cannot request account information without consent from the student.


Financial Responsibility for Lost Cards

Lost, stolen, or misplaced cards must be reported immediately to Security Services at 253.879.3311. To obtain a replacement card, go to the new Dining Services Office (WSC 240) during business hours. There is a $20 charge for a reprint of a lost or stolen Logger Card.


Card Retention and Destruction

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.


Obtaining a Logger Card

To obtain a Logger Card, go to the new Dining Services Office (WSC 240) Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. – 4: 30 p.m during the academic year. You must provide an official government issued ID card as proof of identity. All International students must show their passport. All Logger Cards cost $20. Students, faculty and staff will receive their first card free of charge.  Cardholders are responsible for picking up cards in person. Cards are not sent by mail.

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 new Dining Services Office (WSC 240) 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.
