Student ID Cards (ThunderCard)


All students are required to have a CSU-Pueblo ID card. You can obtain an ID in the Occhiato Center Office, Room 212, during regular working hours Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The cost of an ID is $10 to be paid at the time of purchase. You can reactivate an old card for a fee of $10. You must have a valid state-issued photo ID, Military ID or passport to obtain an University ID.

IDs can be charged to your financial aid account during designated semester time frames. Check with Student Financial Services for exact dates.

Your CSU-Pueblo ID acts as a debit card for ThunderBucks. When making your purchases, present your card to the cashier: when it is swiped the amount of your purchase is deducted from your ThunderBucks balance. 

Student IDs are used for Housing meal plans, athletic faculty use, recreation center admission, library use, ThunderBucks purchases in the food venues and bookstore, laundry services in the Residence Halls, Pepsi vending, and identification for CSU-Pueblo security personnel.

Auxiliary Services and U.S. Bank have partnered up to bring more features to the campus and community. The newest feature to your CSU-Pueblo ID card is it can also perform debit-card pin-based transactions from your U.S. Bank Checking account. You have the option to activate this feature upon receiving the new ID card. See the back of the card for details.

For more information about linking your card to your U.S. Bank checking account, please contact a U.S. Bank Representative. See the web link below for the nearest location and contact information.
