The GATORONE is the official identification of the University of Florida. Whether you are a student, staff, faculty, retiree, spouse/domestic partner or a vendor, the GATORONE is essential for the UF community.

New students:

  • If attending a Preview session, follow the instructions for a Mobile GATORONE sent via email from Business Services.
  • If not attending Preview, new students can request their Mobile GATORONE only after registering for classes AND within two weeks of semester start date.
