- New GATOR ONE Card
New GATOR ONE Card
All existing card holders wishing to upgrade to the new GATORONE card may do so by visiting the Business Services portal. Note: This is not a requirement. Your current card will continue to work.
For all existing cardholders, the first card request in the portal is free.
The new GATORONE card will have both a magnetic stripe and contactless chip technology to enable faster more secure transactions. It will also have a modern design to better reflect the university’s latest branding and logos.
Contactless payment will be immediately available at UF dining, bookstore and beverage vending locations, with plans for expansion to more campus locations this year. Future plans also include upgrading door readers to offer contactless access.
You do not need a new card. Your current card will continue to work. Unless contacted by GATORONE staff, upgrading to these cards is not an immediate requirement for students, faculty and staff.
You do not need to turn in your old Gator 1 Card. However, the GATORONE card office will be happy to safely destroy your old ID for you.
