ID Services Spring Semester Update:  The Campus Service Center provides in-person services from 9:00am to 4:00pm, Monday through Friday. Please note, I.D. Cards are issued on the 1st floor of the Smith Campus Center and not inside the Campus Service Center on the 8th floor. All other services will be provided inside the Campus Service Center on the 8th floor.  The Longwood ID office will remain closed please read this link for information regarding LMA ID cards.

ID Cards will be made for employees and affiliates approved to work on campus and students living on campus or living locally.  We cannot mail ID cards. Those working or studying remotely will receive their ID card when they return to campus.

Please note:  We cannot distribute ID cards to incoming students.  Your Registrar's office will send you information about your card distribution at the appropriate time.  The Extension School has asked that we print cards for registered Extension School degree candidates who come to the ID office starting February 23rd.  The Extension school has asked that we not print cards for Extension school class participants during the Spring and Summer sessions.



If you need a parking permit, please apply for parking on line. Campus Service Center staff will mail you the permit or we will arrange for a pick up location.  Please visit https://www.transportation.harvard.edu/parking and complete the application under “Forms and Tools”. For mailed permits, please contact us at least one week prior to the date you would like to begin parking. If you choose to pick up a pre-purchased permit, please allow 3 days from applying to picking up your permit so that we may process the permit in a timely manner.
