Caring for your ONECard

Your UVic ONECard is designed to last a long time. It's one of the most important pieces of identification you will carry during your time at the University of Victoria.  Here are a few tips that will help you take good care of it:

  • Do not tamper with any information on your UVic ONECard.
  • Keep it away from magnets and computers.
  • Keep it away from sources of heat.
  • Keep it away from keys or anything that can scratch it. Scratches may make the magnetic stripe unreadable.
  • Remove it from your pocket before washing or drying your clothes.
  • Do not bend it or hole punch your card. 
  • Do not use it to scrape your windshield.
  • Do not lend your ONECard to anyone. You are responsible for all transactions on it, authorized or not.
