What is a Lipscomb ID card?

At Lipscomb University, student and employee ID cards serve as a tool to purchase lunches, use mass transit and gain access to particular campus buildings. As a freshman or transfer student, you will be issued an ID card at Lipscomb’s ADVANCE orientation. Faculty and staff obtain ID cards on the first day of employment at one of two campus security locations: the basement of Beaman Library, which is open 24/7; or the basement of Elam, which is open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. If you lose your ID card, a new one can be made for a fee of $15. For more information, contact Lipscomb’s Office of Security and Safety at 615.966.7600.
