As an ID Card
ID/Door Access Card:
The EagleCard ID is the official Morehead State University (MSU) photo identification card. For your convenience, your 7-digit student number is an integral part of the card and is printed in a shaded box on the card. You will need your EagleCard when visiting the University's Camden-Carroll Library, Cashiers Window, Student Health Services, the Wellness Center, University Bookstore, Laughlin Health Building, and at any University sponsored function such as athletic events, concerts, and Theatre productions.
In an effort to help make MSU the most secure campus it can be, the main entrance doors on all Residence Halls now have card access utilizing the magnetic stripe on the ID. All on-campus residential students will now access their assigned Residence Hall using their current/active EagleCard ID. Along with the on-line access control system will be video surveillance and exterior ground floor door monitoring. This function is programmed and managed by the Office of Housing. All replacements for lost/stolen/damaged cards will need to be activated at the Housing office after they are printed. For more information please contact Housing at 606-783-2060.
Also, there is CONTACTLESS door access via your EagleCard ID HID chip to the main computer labs located on the ground floor of Fields Hall and on the 1st floor of Ginger Hall. This function is programmed and managed by the University's Information Technology department. For questions and for more information please contact the Technology Service Center located in 108 Lloyd Cassity building at 606-783-9090 or Information Technology at 606-783-9000.
Be sure to always carry your EagleCard where ever you go on campus because it is the photo identification that is accepted campus wide. Never loan your EagleCard to anyone else. It is non-transferable and only you may use your card. If you knowingly let someone else use it, the card can be confiscated and both individuals are subject to disciplinary action. Whether you are a resident or commuter student, Faculty or Staff, your EagleCard is the key to campus living.
