Important! Students must be registered for an Orientation session, or summer or fall classes before the system will let you add OWLcard to your wallet.

Your Fully Mobile OWLcard

The OWLcard is Temple University's ID card.  Your OWLcard allows you to do just about everything: access campus buildings, buy a meal as part of your university meal plan or at any of the 100+ vendors who partner with Temple's Diamond Dollars program.

New Students

If you are an incoming freshman or transfer student, you must submit a photo electronically as part of your Next Steps process on TUportal. Please read the following instructions about proper photo submission. If you require a physical OWLcard, you must make an appointment to visit  the OWLcard Office. You will need your TUid# (9 digits beginning with a 9) and a government issued photo ID (driver's license, passport, military ID).

Faculty and staff

All Temple employees are required to carry their OWLcard and display this official identification to access university facilities.  Every OWLcard has the ability to be used as a debit account for Diamond Dollars, all you need to do is make a deposit. Employees can deposit money through cash, check, credit card or payroll deduction form.  



We are here for you!

The OWLcard office is open Monday thru Friday from 9:00AM - 4:00 PM. An apppintment is necessary; if you would like to make an appointment please visit our appointment tab.
