Gator 1 Card Procedures

Due to Covid-19 Pandemic, all Gator 1 Card requests for students are required to be submitted through the Distance Gator 1 Card Application Site.  The issuance process for a Gator 1 Card can be expedited once an online Zoom interview has been scheduled.  In lieu of the Zoom interview, students are welcome to visit the Gator 1 Card Office in person for processing to obtain their Gator 1 Card by the next business day. Also, Electronic Staff/Faculty Authorization submissions are required for all UF Employees, Departmental Associates, Affiliates, and visitors.

In order to maintain a safe environment, photo capturing is restricted in the Gator 1 Card office at this time.  Images submitted online/electronically will be used to process Gator 1 ID Cards. We are located on the Mezzanine Level of the Bookstore and Welcome Center adjacent to the Reitz Union.

In order to obtain a card, an official picture Identification is required (Driver’s License or Passport) and UFID number is needed. The cost is $15.00.


Students may submit a request for their Gator 1 Cards online at https://www.bsd.ufl.edu/idcardimgs/distancelearning/
Please email the Gator 1 Card team at gator1card@bsd.ufl.edu for other arrangements.


Faculty and Staff are to work with their department’s ID Card Authorizer to place a request for a Gator 1 Card. Please provide a photo to your department authorizer, and they will submit it with the Gator 1 Card request. The department authorizer can select where the card is sent. Either a campus PO Box or an off-campus address may be selected. Please email the Gator 1 Card team at gator1card@bsd.ufl.edu for other arrangements.
