What is the Student UGA OneCard?

The UGA OneCard is your key to accessing dorms, dining halls, and many other facilities and services throughout campus. Students must be registered for the current semester in order to purchase and use the UGA OneCard. The UGA OneCard is non-transferrable and can only be used by the student to whom it is issued. Misuse of the UGA OneCard may result in disciplinary action by University Judiciary.

How can I find my UGAID number if I don’t have a UGA OneCard?

Your UGAID number can be found by logging into “ATHENA” and clicking the “Financial Aid” button and then “Financial Aid Status”. You will see your UGAID number in front of your name in the upper right corner of the page.

How do I purchase and use Student Tickets?

UGA students who have paid the appropriate student fees are entitled to purchase one student discounted ticket to on-campus athletic events or Tate Student Center programs and events. You must present your UGA OneCard at the box office when purchasing a student ticket. No other forms of ID or license are accepted.

The UGA OneCard is your ticket for student athletic events. The UGA Athletic Association provides electronic ticketing using an online and real-time system.
