Students, to be granted access to the building you must be enrolled in a CVAD course. Also, if your UNT ID card is older than 5 years you may need a new UNT ID card. Please visit Student Accounting and University Cashiering Services at the Eagle Student Services Center to receive a new UNT ID card.

How to get your UNT Student ID card:
1. Go to the 1st Floor of the Eagle Student Services Center on the Denton Campus. ID Systems is located at the Student Accounting office, room 105.
2. Provide us with your UNT EMPL ID Number (8 Digit Number that students can locate online at my.unt.edu by clicking on "Student Center" and then "Demographic Data" under the "Personal Information" section). Let us know which card works best for you.
3. Students selecting the Standard Card will have their picture taken and will receive their ID card.

CVAD Students, faculty and staff that are unable to swipe into the building after-hours with a current UNT ID card will need to visit the key shop on campus. The key shop is located on the NE corner of Sycamore Hall and can only be accessed from the exterior of the building. The key shop will verify that the magnetic swipe on the back of your ID card is coded correctly. The key shop hours are Monday–Friday, 8am-5pm.
