All students may request a UCard, but for most GPS students a UCard is not needed. The UCard primarily works as a student ID and an access card, but benefits also include a declining balance (debit) feature that works at all on-campus dining locations, bookstores, vending machines, printing and copy machines across campus, as well as over 25 participating merchants in the Lowell area.
GPS students who require parking before 2:00pm and have classes in labs secured by card access are required to have a UCard. Your instructor will let you know if you need a UCard to access a particular lab.
Note: If you park anywhere on campus before 2:00pm and do not have a parking decal on your vehicle, you will be subject to a parking fine. For information on parking, please visit our website at www.uml.edu/ucaps.
If you require a UCard, you will need to visit the UCAPS Office anytime after you have registered for classes and after May 8, to have your photo taken and UCard issued. UCards are good for life and the first card is free - if you require a replacement card, the cost is $20.
Contact the UCAPS Office at (978) 934-2800 or email: UCAPS@uml.edu, if you have any questions. UCAPS is located in University Crossing on Salem Street.
UPrint is a green initiative that is aimed to reduce paper waste by eliminating unwanted and excess printing.
If you are an GPS student and you do not have a UCard card, you may purchase a UPrint Card at either the North or South Campus Library; If you would like to get a Student ID Card and take advantage of a $15 printing credit per semester, please follow the instructions on the UML UCard Site.
Printing with UPrint only involves a few extra steps than normal printing:
