Campus Card System

We operate the campus card-based physical access systems, including door card readers, meal readers, parking barriers, etc.

Resources and Information


The Basis system runs all of the offline card readers on campus and is used along with CS Gold to provide card-swipe access to rooms across campus.

ID Card Printing

We print and reissue HuskyCards. These cards are the official identification form of the university, and can be used as a personal debit card, library card, and to obtain swipe access to buildings and parking lots on campus.

Lost HuskyCards

If you find a lost HuskyCard, please return it to Public Safety so that it can be reunited with its owner.


We maintain the card readers that operate the parking barriers at Michigan Tech.


Vending machines on campus are equipped with card readers that recognize the HuskyCard, which allows our students to use their dining dollars and Express cash in our vending machines.

CS Gold

CS Gold runs all the online card readers on campus.

Meal Readers

We troubleshoot and resolve problems with the meal readers at the residence halls.

Room and Building Access

We help users with card-swipe access to rooms and buldings.
