Answers to the most commonly asked questions about the R-Card.

A new R-Card will need to be picked up from the Campus Safety office. It is recommended that you contact the R-Card office or log into your account to freeze your R-Card so that the funds on your R-Card can't be used. When a new card is printed, your old card is deactivated.
