What is a Gator Card?
The Gator Card is the official UHD identification card. Issued by UHD Sports & Fitness, the now updated Gator Card provides access to facilities and services such as the W.I. Dykes Library, computer labs, Wellness & Success Center, and to a declining-balance meal program. The issuance of an active Gator Card will be based on an individual’s primary affiliation with UHD and is only valid and active when the bearer is a registered student, faculty, staff, alumni ($10 fee), or a UHD affiliate.
