Privacy and Husky Card Security
- Any person who would like to receive a Husky Card must have a valid NU ID number. If a patron does not have an NU ID number, they must apply for a sponsored account.
- Under no circumstances should you loan your Husky Card to anyone. This includes family, friends and roommates. If you are caught with someone else’s Husky Card, NUPD and Northeastern University has the right to pursue disciplinary action.
- You are allowed to have only one active Husky Card at a time. If your current active Husky Card is broken, you are required to present the broken card to get a new, free one at the time of production. Patrons who are both an employee and a student are required to use their active employee Husky Card.
- If you lose your Husky Card and feel that charges have been unjustly used from your account, you must file a report with NUPD.
- Any University employee tasked with making Husky Cards has the right to deny the issuance of a Husky Card for any reason they deem necessary.
- A government issued photo ID, such as a license or passport, must be presented when receiving your first Husky Card. No exceptions will be made. High School IDs, bank cards, birth certificates, social security cards, etc. will not be accepted as forms of identification.
- A Husky Card may only be obtained by the student, staff or faculty member for whom the Husky Card is being issued. No exceptions, including written consent, will be accepted.
Replacement Husky Cards
- There is a $25 nonrefundable fee to replace a lost or stolen Husky Card. The fee will be billed to your tuition account, or you can make the payment at the Student Financial Services Office, located at 354 Richards Hall, and bring your receipt to the Husky Card Office, 4 Speare Commons, to obtain your new Husky Card.
- If your most recent Husky Card is broken, you may exchange the card for a new one free of charge provided you submit your broken card at the time you request the replacement card. Submitting the broken card at a later time will not entitle you to a reversal of prior card-replacement charges. The name and number on the card must match the most recent card in the system in order to receive a free replacement card. Students who submit a broken card without the number on the card are not eligible for a free replacement card.
- Once your lost or stolen Husky Card is replaced, it is permanently unavailable for use and cannot be reactivated at any time. Parking garages do not receive updated information until the following day. If you have parked in a University parking garage and have obtained a new Husky Card, please inform the Husky Card office and request that you retain the old card.
NOTE: Please be advised that the policies listed above are subject to change.
