The PLU ID card, known as a LuteCard is provided to all Pacific Lutheran University students and employees.

Your LuteCard is your key to PLU’s buildings, activities and campus restaurants.

>>Your LuteCard is your PLU ID and much more!

  • Declining Balance Accounts:  Dining Dollars and LuteBucks can be used for purchases in all Campus Restaurants, for copying and printing, for purchases with Meal Plan accounts. These accounts are available to all students and employees.
  • Building Access:  Your LuteCard works as a keycard throughout campus. The Access Administration Department will assign your custom access levels based on your campus living, work, classes and recreation needs.
  • On-Campus Events:  Many PLU events require showing or swiping your LuteCard at the door. PLU students often get discounts on tickets to music concerts and various other on-campus events, but only with your LuteCard.
  • Attendance: Some attendance is recorded using your LuteCard.
  • Sports Facilities: Your LuteCard will allow you to access to Names Fitness Center and the pool after you have completed the Fitness Center Waiver Form.
  • Library: Your LuteCard is also your PLU library card.
