Your Trojan card: identification and access

Welcome! Use one card campus-wide! Your Trojan Card is a vital part of your life at Dakota State! The Card Services Office issues the Trojan card, which is the official identification and access card for students, faculty, and staff at Dakota State University.

Your Trojan Card can be used for anything. Swipe it at the library to check out equipment and materials. Use it to access your meal plan and to utilize health services at Madison Regional Health clinic or hospital. Or, take it to athletics events to get in for free, then use it to purchase food at concessions. You can use it at DSU's Production Center for printing and postal services. Additionally, the Trojan Card will give you access to your residence hall including laundry and vending, academic buildings after hours, and the Community Center. And get your spirit gear and more from the Trojan Zone. You can even use it at select off-campus establishments.

Managing your card

You can manage your card online or using the app on your phone. You can add funds or freeze your account if your card is lost or stolen.
