Student ID – PantherCard

PantherCard Student ID

Students will need their PantherCard ID to enter the residence halls, use their dining plan, utilize the Klotsche Center, check out books at the library, and attend free UWM social, educational and sporting events.  UWM students may pay for various services on-campus and off-campus, such as, WEPA printing, Student Union services, ala carte dining options, sportswear/gifts at PantherShop, Books @ ECampus, vending and other off-campus services by using the UWM Dining Dollars and PantherCa$h debit accounts available on your PantherCard.

New students will receive their PantherCard at orientation.  Students should upload their favorite selfie to the UWM GET Mobile App (download on your phone or tablet), it will be approved if it meets the requirements and your PantherCard should be printed and waiting for you at orientation.  Another option is to have your picture taken at the PantherCard office on the first floor in the Student Union.

Anytime Dining Plan

The PantherCard is required to access the Anytime Dining Plan for residents of housing.  Simply scan your PantherCard for access to the cafes in Sandburg, Cambridge and Riverview and enjoy the dining options as often and whenever you wish.

In addition, Dining Dollars are available for use when choosing the Gold or Platinum Dining Plan. Dining Dollars allow you to purchase meals ala carte at all RESTORs, campus retail restaurants and off-campus restaurant partners. Present your PantherCard for payment when purchasing at restaurants with your Dining Dollars.
