Schedule an appointment to visit the University DukeCard Office, then download and complete the University Card Request form. Bring the completed form to the University DukeCard Office to obtain your card.

Health system authorized contractors will need a card request form from Duke Temp or the organization with whom they are contracting through. Volunteers must have a card request form from the Volunteers Office while visitors need a card request form from the department they are visiting.
Medical Center and Health Systems employees may request an ID-only DukeCard which displays the employee's first and last name. First name only DukeCards are also available. ID-only DukeCards are for identification purposes only and may not be used for door access, purchases, etc. Note that physicians and doctors are not eligible for ID-only DukeCards and will receive a physical DukeCard displaying their first and last name.
School of Nursing and School of Medicine students are emailed when it is time to upload their DukeCard photo. Students receive their DukeCards from their Program Coordinator. Any student who didn't submit a photo must visit the Medical Center DukeCard Office on or after their orientation date with a Medical Center Card Request Form completed by their Program Coordinator and a valid photo ID to receive their DukeCard.
