The UNC One Card is the official identification card for students, faculty, and staff of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. It also provides access to certain facilities/services and serves as the student’s library card. The UNC One Card also acts as a stored-value card and allows the cardholder to initiate financial transactions at an increasing number of campus locations, including: Carolina Dining Services, UNC Student Stores, snack units, photocopy machines, and laser printers in the UNC Libraries, and certain food/beverage vending machines. For further information and/or replacement cards, please visit:


Each student is assigned a unique login called an ONYEN (“the Only Name You’ll Ever Need”). The ONYEN is UNC’s campus wide identifier students use to gain access to various electronic resources on campus as well as access to buildings after hours.


Students that complete their program on the Asheville Campus will also be issued an UNCA One Card.
