Concordia Experience

Cougar Card

The Cougar Card is the official identification card for the students, faculty and staff of Concordia University Chicago. It offers a convenient and safe way to make purchases and utilize campus services. The Cougar Card:

  • Serves as an on-campus meal ticket with Sodexo Campus Services. With it, students, faculty and staff can purchase meals and snacks in the Cafeteria, the Library Café and the Christopher Center Lobby. 

  • Provides access to outer residence hall doors for those students living on campus as well as provides Fitness Center access to all students, faculty and staff. 

  • Functions as a library card, usable in Concordia’s library as well as in other community and academic libraries.

  • Can be activated for use as a U.S. Bank  ATM and PIN-based debit card if user chooses.

Make the Cougar Card the only card you carry, on and off campus.
