If your current card stops working to get into a building/dorm/parking gate, please email with your name, ULID, phone number, and detailed explanation of card issue. You will be directed to the correct department or procedure to follow. For emergency need of building/dorm access (immediate danger to people or property), you may call 337-482-6447 and ask the UL Police department to assist you.

General Access Guidelines

  • Building/Room access
    • If you are needing new access or need to make changes to your existing access, please have a department head or in some cases the VP over your department to email for all access requests/changes.
  • Dorm Access
  • Parking Access

New and Replacement IDs

Students & Employees

For everyone’s safety we ask that you only request a Cajun Card if it’s necessary (i.e.: unable to access your building/dorm/parking and/or unable to use your meal plan).  If you are in need of a Cajun card, please email to request your card. Please include your name, ULID, phone number, and the reason you need the card currently.

If we approve your request for a new/replacement ID, you will be given further instructions by email. We will be printing cards on an “as needed basis”. If your request is approved, you will be given a specific day, time and location to pick up your card (depending on urgency). If it is a replacement card, you will have to pay the $20 replacement fee over the phone or online (instructions will be emailed to you.)  Our office is only accepting credit/debit card payments for replacement cards during this time.


If you are a vendor that has been granted permission to be on campus during closure, please email (with proper authorization attached) to request a new or replacement identification card. The email must come from a supervisor or representative used to request these cards. The same process above for students and employees will apply for receiving a new card. If your current card stops working, please email and we will resolve the issue by email or phone.
