How to use your Mountaineer Card

Mountaineer Card

The Mountaineer Card is WVU’s official photo identification and access card. When the card is swiped through a reader, the account number on the card’s magnetic stripe is read and the reader communicates with our system to validate access or availability of funds. You can even see everywhere the Mountaineer Card is accepted.

Mobile ID

Mobile ID is an app which allows users to authorize their smartphone or other smart device to function as their Mountaineer Card at certain campus locations. For now, this service can be used by residence hall students when doing their laundry.
