The J-Card Office hours are Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 8:30am to 12pm.

We strongly recommend all full-time Homewood faculty, students and staff download or transition to mobile credential, rather than using a physical J-Card.

New/replacement J-Cards are available for persons authorized to be on campus during the Fall semester. Email jcard@jhu.edu to request your card. If this will be your first J-Card and we do not have your photo on file, include a headshot or passport style photo (selfies are fine, as long as the end result is similar to a passport photo). We’ll pre-print your card for pickup during the hours above.

All other affiliates will be able to receive or replace J-Cards when the campus reopens for regular operations. Your mobile credential will be your ID during this time. Part-time students or those in fully online programs may request a non-photo ID be mailed to their home address.

Any other questions or concerns: Email jcard@jhu.edu or call 410.516.5121.

We appreciate your patience during this time and hope you remain safe and healthy.

It’s your ID. It’s your library card. It’s your key. It’s your wallet. It’s your J-Card.

The J-Card gets you into residence halls, the library, academic buildings, and other campus facilities. It’s also as good as cash: You can store money on your J-Card and use it to buy food and other items on and off campus. Make copies, do laundry, buy a pizza: It’s accepted by more than a dozen businesses in Charles Village.

Want to obtain a J-Card? Need to replace a lost or stolen card? We are here to help!

With the new J-Card Mobile Credential, Homewood students can use their iPhone, Apple Watch, or Android device to get into their residence hall, print documents at the library, pay for lunch, or shop at the book store. Learn more about Mobile Credential.
