Department Overview

Welcome to OneCard, Swarthmore's ID card for students, faculty, and staff. Your OneCard gives you access to your meal plans, certain campus buildings, and the College’s libraries. It allows you to purchase food from participating vendors in the borough of Swarthmore, campus vending machines and move seamlessly through campus and the surrounding area. Explore these pages for information on how to use your OneCard, the spaces and services currently accessible with your card, and the latest updates as the OneCard program continues to grow. Swarthmore alumni, emeriti, retirees, and affiliates may also receive a OneCard if they wish to use certain campus services.
