ID Cards and Locks

Your Trinity ID Card

Your Trinity ID card has accounts associated with it, including door access to buildings and rooms, Dining Dollars used to make purchases in campus dining facilities, Free Print Dollars used for public printing, and Bantam Bucks used for campus vending machines, laundry facilities, and general purchases on campus and at local establishments off campus.

Lost or stolen ID cards can be replaced at the Help Desk for a fee. An ID card that is no longer working because of damage to the card will be replaced at no cost if the damaged card is brought to the Help Desk. Students who turn 21 have the option to receive a landscape formatted ID for free, provided they bring in their current portrait formatted ID. (The portrait formatted ID will continue to function even after the student turns 21.)

Personal Access Code (PAC) Keys and Locks

In addition to Trinity ID card use for door access, each student, faculty and staff member is issued a 6-digit personal access code (PAC). For your security, a PAC should never be shared. There is a $25 Bantam Bucks charge for issuing a new PAC. 

For places in which a Trinity ID card or PAC cannot be used, a key will be issued. Keys are only issued with approval by an individual's Department Head. Requests can be made by contacting the Help Desk at x2100 or online at

Lock changes or repairs may be requested through the Help Desk or in the case of an emergency by contacting Campus Safety. Special or unusual requests for lock changes and modifications that are approved will be provided as a reimbursable service.
