J-Card Office


Welcome! The ID Card Services Office issues the J-Card which is the official identification and access card for students, faculty and staff at the Johns Hopkins University. J-Cash --a prepaid, stored-value account that is part of your J-Card-- is the convenient, cashless way to pay for your purchases on and off campus. The area's most popular local businesses accept J-Cash, and you can use the card to pay for school supplies, at restaurants, for delivery, and more.  You can deposit money into J-Cash in a number of easy ways, including the deposit machines on campus or by mail.  J-Cash balances roll over each term/year and the card remains active as long as you are a registered student or current faculty/staff member.  See the J-Card Brochure for a summary of services. Contact  Housing and Dining for questions on meal plans and Dining Dollars.
