To protect your privacy! Stony Brook University uses the 9-digit PeopleSoft number
(EMPL ID#) for student and staff identification. Unlike Social Security Numbers, the
EMPL ID# generated by PeopleSoft works only at Stony Brook University.
This number is a sequentially and unduplicated number assigned by the University and
unique to the cardholder. It is only valid and usable at Stony Brook University.
This is a visual verification; no information is recorded from the picture ID. This
procedure is designed to protect the privacy of each person obtaining a card and add
security to the carding procedure.
No. The first card is provided at no charge. However, the charge for replacing lost,
stolen or damaged cards is $25.00 each time. Please find additional information here.
You can pay the $25 fee with a credit card, debit card, check, or request to have
the charge added to your student account. The office does not accept cash.
Your meal plan may be activated via the Meal Plan Office. Visit the FSA website for more information.
With the new technology, the patron bar coding system is no longer used on the Stony
Brook campus card. Libraries (including the Melville Library and HSC Library) have been retooled to accept your campus card and read the sixteen digit number
of the front of your card as your patron identification. If you have any questions/concerns,
please visit either library's main circulation desk.
Contact either campus card office for technical support and or advice.
