DukeCard Care

Your DukeCard will last longer if you follow these guidelines:

  • Holes should not be punched in the magnetic stripe, barcode or perimeter of the DukeCard to avoid damaging the card
  • Close proximity to magnetic fields (TVs, stereos, microwaves, computers) may decode the magnetic stripe on the DukeCard
  • Avoid exposing the DukeCard to water
  • Stickers, pins, tape or other items may not be affixed to the DukeCard in a way that obscures the wearer's photo, Duke University or Duke Health System logo, or any information printed on the ID
  • Purchase a RFID blocking card holder for best protection
