Your Passport to Life at Marquette

Your Passport to Life at Marquette

It’s your Marquette ID. It’s an access pass to the libraries, rec centers and computer labs. It’s also a way to pay for certain things on and near campus. It’s your MarquetteCard, and it’s an essential tool for campus survival.

Rec Centers

All students receive free membership to Marquette’s top-notch recreation centers, located at each end of campus. Your MarquetteCard gets you in.

Residence Halls and Meal Plan

Show your MarquetteCard at the front desk of your residence hall for access to your building. (It’s an important safety feature.) Your meal plan also resides on your MarquetteCard.


Besides allowing you to check into the libraries, your MarquetteCard lets you check books out when you leave. The bar code on your card also allows you to log into the libraries’ special research databases on and off campus.


Your MarquetteCard comes fully loaded with $28 ($14 each semester) worth of laser printing on the university's computer lab printers — that's 400 black and whites. If your account runs dry, your print charges will be automatically deducted from your MarquetteCASH account. The non-transferable allocation is renewed automatically at the beginning of every academic semester.

Next Step

Students will have their picture taken at SPARK, and their MarquetteCard will be available for pick up at New Student Orientation.


Don’t have exact change (or any change, for that matter)? No problem. Your MarquetteCard includes a prepaid, stored-value account, kind of like a debit card. When you deposit money into MarquetteCASH on your MarquetteCard, you have access to these locations.


You can make a deposit into your MarquetteCASH account in a number of ways, including online or by phone at (414) 288-2273. You also can deposit in person at Marquette Central, residence hall stores, Union Station or value transfer stations throughout campus.
