Before obtaining access to campus-wide resources and services, Community Faculty must apply for a UID Number and UID Card.
Community Faculty who carry UID Cards are eligible for access to a variety of campus-wide resources and services including access to Boston University libraries, Medical Campus and Charles River campus facilities, discounts at certain athletic and cultural events, and entrance to the Boston University Faculty Club at 775 Commonwealth Avenue. Community faculty with a UID Card also receive discounts at the BU Barnes & Noble bookstore, including a 20% discount on hardcover books (40% off on hardcover bestsellers), and a 10% discount on professional reference books and paperbacks (30% off on paperback bestsellers).
After you have obtained your UID Number, you are immediately eligible to receive a UID Card, or "Terrier" Card. UID Cards are available at the Boston University Medical Campus, room C-212, Monday - Friday, between 11:00 am and 4:00 pm.
