 Lose your ISUCard over the weekend?

We do not have weekend pick up hours. Your hall desk should have temporary access cards they can check out to you for use to get in to the building until you are able to make it in to pick up your ISUCard. Once you get your ISUCard you will need to return your access card to your hall desk as soon as possible. 
You can use Dining's GET application to use your meal plan. The link to register for use is below for your convenience. Contact Dining with any questions at 515-294-3856 or dining@iastate.edu. 

 Do NOT store your ISUCard on the back of your phone!!

We have seen an influx of ISUCards deactivated due to storage on mobile devices. The main source of deactivation comes from wireless phone chargers however, ISUCards have been deactivated in the absence of wireless phone chargers as well. The best place to store your ISUCard is in a wallet when not in use. There is a $25 fee for replacement if damage to the ISUCard has been caused by improper storage or non normal wear.
