Georgia Tech revamps card design, adds contactless

Andrew Hudson   ||   Jul 08, 2016  ||   ,

The Georgia Tech BuzzCard will don a new look beginning this summer, with all incoming freshmen students receiving the newly redesigned credential while at orientation.

According to an official university release, the new card features a contemporary design that includes a hologram highlighting Tech Tower – a campus landmark. The new design comes after the previous BuzzCard’s thirteen-year lifespan beginning in 2003.

Along with a new design, the updated BuzzCard also introduces smart, contactless technology. The addition of contactless will join the existing proximity technology that currently exists in all BuzzCards. The new multi-technology credentials will work seamlessly as the physical access control systems on Georgia Tech’s campus are upgraded over the next several years.

Incoming students along with new faculty, staff and affiliates, will be issued the new BuzzCard credentials beginning this summer. The BuzzCard Center will begin issuing cards to the rest of the campus community with the start of the fall semester.

Existing cardholders will receive a notification to visit the BuzzCard Center to have a new card produced. A new photo will be required, though there will be no fee for the new card provided the current card is traded in.
