Replacing a OneCard

  • A replacement OneCard can be obtained by emailing onecard@hampshire.edu and providing your name and ID. New cards will be send via campus mail, usually within 24 hours. A fee of $25 applies in all cases except when you have a legal name change processed through the central records office (this is not the same as changing your preferred name) and we reuse your existing photo, OR You have your OneCard in your possession (eg: you have not lost it) and it is scratched, cracked, or otherwise damaged through normal wear and tear and we reuse your existing photo.

What should I do if my OneCard stops working, is lost, or stolen?

  • If you have temporarily misplaced a card and know where it is, sign out a temporary card for residential use by going to the housing operations office (HOO) at in the Merrill Student Life Center, 413.559.5453 during business hours (9 a.m.-4 p.m.) After business hours, go to the campus safety and security office on the ground floor of the Johnson Library. If the office door is closed, call 413.559.5424 to ask an officer to meet you there. Be sure to contact the OneCard office to get a new ID, and return your temporary card on the next business day.
  • You need to bring an alternate form of picture ID to the dining commons when you have a temporary card so they can verify you are an active student. You will not be allowed to enter the dining commons with just a temporary card.
