One card does it all for students at Texas university

The University of Texas at Arlington has upgraded its one-card system to the point that the students and staff ID cards can be used to access appropriate buildings, make on- and off- campus purchases, and clock in and out of work.

The university’s one-card system, implemented by campus card provider CBORD, is the cumulative effort of 15 years of updates and added functionality, according to this article in Campus Safety. The magnetic stripe card controls access to campus buildings, tracks meal plans, records time and attendance and provides identification on university grounds.

This system not only keeps students and university employees safe by restricting access to sensitive areas and university events, it also allows cardholders to take advantage of privileges such as meal plans and campus laundry facilities.

The same system also tracks an employee’s time and attendance through PC-based virtual clock user interfaces that allow employees to clock in and out.
