UF rolls out digital credentials

UF is the first higher-education institution in the state to implement mobile ID technology.

The University of Florida will offer its students, faculty and staff contactless technology on campus to conveniently access campus buildings, purchase food, check in for events, use library services, and more.

The shift from physical cards to a contactless GATORONE ID allows for faster transactions by simply placing a mobile device near a campus reader. Physical cards will still be issued when necessary.

To enable mobile IDs campuswide, UF partnered with industry leader Transact Campus. With these digital credentials, any action that would have previously required a physical ID card can be completed with most smartphones.
