  • During business hours (Monday-Friday, 10 am – 2 pm):
    Visit the ID Office at Missouri Hall 1100

Temporary Meal Cards

If you have lost your Truman ID Card and would like a few days to see if it turns up before paying for a replacement, you can receive a temporary meal card from the Food Service Office in the Student Union Building. These cards are issued for a limited amount of time, and if your ID card is not found it will need to be replaced.

Residence Hall Access

If a student with residence hall access loses their ID card during normal business hours (Monday-Friday, 10:00 am – 2:00 pm), they should go to the ID Office for a replacement ID card.

If a resident loses their Truman ID Card and is locked out of their building, they should call their building’s duty phone number to be let in by a Student Advisor. If a resident’s card is lost on a weekend or during a university break, a temporary card might be issued. Temporary cards only allow access into the residence halls. Temporary cards do not work for services like the dining halls, library, rec center, etc.

As soon as a Truman ID Card is reported as lost/stolen, it will be deactivated so it cannot be misused.
