Materials shortage affects issuing of university cards

Andy Williams   ||   Sep 27, 2012  ||   ,

The University of Chicago is reporting on its Web site that “due to an unprecedented materials shortage” with the manufacturer of its specialized university ID cards, the school can’t issue new cards at this time.

The shortage is expected to be cleared up by the first week of October. In the meantime, students will be issued two temporary ID cards–one containing the student’s photo to serve as identification and the other with the contactless chip that enables students to access buildings.

“We will replace these two temporary cards with standard UChicago cards after we receive new card stock,” the Web site notes. “We expect to be able to begin that process in the first week of October, and we’ll notify you with further information at that time.”

The site did not specify why there was a materials shortage.
