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 Dining Services Office (WSC 001) during business hours. There is a $15 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 Dining Services Office (WSC 001) 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 $15. 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.


More Information

  1. Lost or stolen cards must be reported immediately to Security Services at 253.879.3311.

  2. 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.

  3. Never punch holes or deface your card beyond its normal everyday use. Cards that have been damaged require a $15 replacement fee.  For normal wear and tear, no replacement fee will be charged. 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.

  4. Dining Dollars and Bookstore dollars are non-transferable.  Only the person pictured on the Logger Card will be allowed to spend from that account. The cardholder may be required to sign a receipt for goods received. 

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

  6. Meal Plan refunds are granted upon leaving or graduating from the university in the amount of $25 or less per semester.

  7. The Logger Card is an official document and form of university identification.  The picture on the card must be of the card holder only.  No hats, sunglasses, or objects may appear in the picture on the card.  “Silly” faces or gestures are not permitted.   This is enforced at the time of picture taking.

Michael Veseth '72: Washington Professor of the Year 2010

After 35 years of teaching and developing what a colleague describes as “an unbelievable mastery” of his academic field, Veseth did not want to lose touch with the inevitable frustrations of being a student. And so he juggles—badly by his own account—and learns how to learn, so he can pass along a passion for learning to his students.

This is how Mike Veseth, the Robert G. Albertson Professor of International Political Economy, came to be honored with the prestigious 2010 Washington State Professor of the Year award, sponsored by the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education and the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. He is the sixth Puget Sound professor to secure the title, adding further to Puget Sound’s record of being recognized with the honor more often than any other college or university in Washington state.

“Mike Veseth is a teacher for a lifetime and a person who wears his greatness with the grace of Baryshnikov, without a trace of the prima donna,” said Puget Sound President Ronald R. Thomas. “From the beginning of his teaching career to this day, from his first book on the debt crisis in Victorian England to his most recent volume critiquing globalization, Mike sees the big picture and encourages his students to do the same. As an international political economist who knows the importance of wise investments, Mike invests generously in all his students, and the life-time return is impressive indeed.”
