New CatCard

The new chip-enabled CatCards for students, faculty and staff offer greater security, and support tap-and-go checkout. Although the new cards still have a mag-strip which can be used on many readers on campus, this will slowly phase out to chip-only readers. 

The new card has an antenna embedded along the entire outside edge of the card, so don’t punch a hold in the card for a lanyard or damage it in any other way.

  • Davidson College identification
  • Building access to residence halls, some academic buildings, the fitness centers, etc.
