OneCard Student ID
You will be able to get your OneCard starting on your Orientation Day. More information about OneCard will be emailed to you before your arrival on-campus.
Your OneCard has multiple purposes — you’ll be able to swipe it to gain entry to the buildings or classroom/workshop areas, you’ll use it for signing items out of the A/V department and tool cribs and for borrowing items from the Library. Your OneCard will also get you a discount at some local stores.
You will be able to rent a locker starting your first week of classes. More information about lockers will be emailed to students in the summer. Please check your ECU Webmail often.
Foundation students can work in Foundation classrooms whenever they are not scheduled for classes or other bookings. Check the schedules posted on the doors to classrooms. Space can be booked through the Foundation Office.
