Obtaining Your J-Card

The J-Card is the University Identification card and also serves as a library card.

Request your J-Card

There are four ways to obtain your J-Card ID:

1. If you will be taking classes locally and require physical access to buildings on the Baltimore, MCC, and Washington, DC campuses, please send an e-mail containing your full name and JHED ID to aapjcard@jhu.edu to obtain your J-Card Photo ID.

Students must upload their picture and allow three business days for their J-Card ID to be ready for pick up. In the My JHU portal you can upload a color picture of yourself. Search for your JHED ID here. ID Cards can be collected day and evening hours at the BOB Building, 1717 Massachusetts Ave NW, Suite 104.

2. Online students may also request a J-Card ID if they desire. (Fill out the online J-Card Form). Non-photo J-Cards will be managed by the Homewood J-Card Office.
