Magstripe on Stanford ID Card Going Away
In September 2020, the ID Card Office will begin issuing Stanford ID cards without the magnetic stripe, or magstripe, on the back.
Stanford ID cards with magstripes will continue to work with the magstripe card readers operated by University IT (UIT) Campus Card Services and found at many campus buildings, dining halls, and cafes. However, the magstripes will no longer work with readers not supported by UIT.
Departments and groups that use readers not supported by UIT can contact Card Services Director Jay Kohn (firstname.lastname@example.org) to work on an alternative solution for their location.
