Student ID Cards

School of Medicine students receive a student identification card/door security card, WolfCard, during orientation. The WolfCard/door card is required for proof of medical student status and used to gain access to the medical school's classrooms and labs.

The WolfCard/door card is also used to obtain many services on the University of Nevada, Reno campus including access to the fitness center, making prints and copies or checking out materials in the campus libraries. Photo identification is required to obtain the card at the WolfCard Office in the Joe Crowley Student Union. The first card is $10 and a replacement is $15. Questions should be directed to (775) 784-4001.


Students use WolfCards to access educational facilities after 5 p.m. on weekdays and on weekends. Contact the Office of Medical Education to obtain a WolfCard request form. Students are expected to abide by rules and procedures for accessing and using the medical education facilities in a responsible and professional manner.

Please notify the Office of Medical Education regarding lost WolfCards. Lost WolfCard accounts can be deactivated through the WolfCard Office - (775) 682-7727.
