Bengal Card Services @ Campus Connection

The Campus Connection information desk in the Pond Student Union provides Bengal ID Cards and name badges for the university.

Bengal ID 

Full-time and part-time students are required to have a valid Bengal Card as proof of enrollment. Bengal Card holders also receive benefits throughout campus and the community. View Bengal Card Benefits

New students receive one Bengal Card at no charge. Returning students keep the same card each year. Bengal Cards are electronically re-validated each semester the student is enrolled and fees are paid.

If a Bengal Card is lost or stolen, immediately notify Campus Connection at (208) 282-INFO (4636) during regular office hours or email infodesk@isu.edu. A "Lost Card" hold will be put on the card so that no one can use it for housing, meal plans, or access. If the card is turned in to Campus Connection, the cardholder will be notified by email. Replacement cards may be purchased for $15.

  • To order a Bengal ID, email your photo with your request to infodesk@isu.edu--please ensure you follow these Bengal ID Photo Requirements.

  • When your Bengal ID is ready, you may pick it up at the Pond Student Union Campus Connection desk during our hours of operation. There is a $2 fee to mail cards to an off-campus address.
