Your Adelphi photo ID card will give you access to the gym, library, and the underground parking garage. If you are a resident student it will also have access to your residence hall. Resident students will and Commuter students may have a meal plan put on their card.

  • If damaged, bring the pieces (must have identifying information on it) to the Public Safety office to get a free replacement.
