Campus Safety

Mastodon Cards & Security Badges


The Mastodon Card Office is the home for your official IPFW University identification card. The Mastodon Card has a variety of features ranging from free Gym access for students to discounts on various off campus vendors, with plans underway to add many more.  In addition, Security badges are offered to select campus departments or approved students to show authorized access when working off campus or in areas other than their home department.

We are conveniently located at the Campus Safety Information Desk in Walb Student Union. We are open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Come see us for all your Mastodon Card needs.


Students enrolled in the current semester and faculty and staff recognized in the Human Resources system are eligible for a card. Also, alumni and associates (family members of students, faculty, staff, and alumni; or community members) who purchase a membership to the Hilliard Gates Fitness Center or who need to use the Helmke Library may obtain Mastodon Cards.
