The ID Center produces Pitt-Johnstown identification cards for students, faculty, staff, and certain affiliates of the University. The Center also generates badges, worn for security purposes, which identify employees who work in varying locations and outside contractors who are authorized to work on campus.
Cards are produced on a state of the art ID Card printer and laminator and can be produced on-site in a matter of minutes.
The Pitt-Johnstown ID Center is located in room G52 in the Student Union Building. Phone: (814) 269-2049. Normal hours are from 8:30am to 5:00pm Monday through Friday. Special accommodations can be made for those who are unable to get to Pitt-Johnstown during normal operating hours.
The primary purpose of an ID Card is to identify a person as belonging to the Pitt-Johnstown Campus Community. The regular Pitt-Johnstown ID Card is recognized as the Mountain Cat Card and provides the owner's photograph, name and access number. The card serves as a means for students to access their meal plan and for housing residents to gain access to their place of residence. Students can also add funds to their individual Mountain Cat Cash account at the Business Office. You can then use your Mountain Cat Card to access that account for making purchases at all campus eating venues and at the Bookstore.
Furthermore, students can use his/her Mountain Cat Card at photocopiers and to pay for color printing. Vending funds are added to this account at one of several revalue stations located on campus. These stations are in the Owen Library and next to the User Services Support desk in Blackington Hall. Once funds have been added to the vending strip on the card they can NOT be refunded.
New students on campus during the summer for Academic Planning sessions or Placement Exams will have their photo taken at that time. Their cards are not immediately produced, but are printed over the summer and distributed to students in August during New Student Orientation and "move-in" day.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not punch any holes in your Mountain Cat card as this can cause it to malfunction.
