Request Cards or Fobs for Proximity Access
Before You Begin
A proximity card or key fob uses an embedded circuit and antenna to relay access information when it is near – in proximity – to a reader. No swiping needed. All proximity cards, key fobs, and other proximity devices used at the University of Illinois must be ordered from i-card Programs.
There are 3 types of proximity devices:
- Individual ID cards that look and work like regular ID cards, and are associated with one person.
- Department cards
- Department key fobs
To request cards or fobs for proximity access:
- Contact the i-card Help Desk (217-265-6464 or firstname.lastname@example.org). They will work with you to determine which type of proximity device will best meet your needs.
