About the Card

The Eagle One Card is a multipurpose identification and debit account card which serves as the official ID card of Boston College.

Students must keep this card available at all times in order to obtain access to residence halls, computer labs, libraries and the Connell Recreation Center. Boston College identification cards are the property of the University and must be presented to authorized University officials upon request. Failure to comply with this can result in judicial action. Please keep in mind that falsifying, altering or misusing your own or anyone else's Eagle One Card in any way is strictly prohibited and illegal.
