Virtual ID Cards

As a member of The University of Texas at Austin, you have a Virtual ID Card that you can use in some locations on campus instead of your physical university identification card. 

  • Virtual ID Cards
    As a member of The University of Texas at Austin, you have a Virtual ID Card that displays your official ID Card photo, UT EID, preferred name, and university affiliations. You can access this card at any time by logging into the Virtual ID Card website.

Virtual ID Cards do not provide access to buildings on campus or meal plans associated with physical cards, cannot be used to board Capital Metro buses and commuter rail, and may not be accepted as a valid form of identification at all locations on campus.
    If you are encountering any issues with your Virtual ID Card, please contact with a description of the error and a screenshot if possible.
