Duke University - Apple Student ID
United States

Creating a seamless

experience with Student ID.

On a mission to bring students the best possible experience on campus, Duke University is at the forefront of integrating cutting-edge technology into its school-wide services. And by leveraging the strength, security and ubiquity of Apple devices, Duke is delivering a modern experience to its community.

Every day, the university receives about 100,000 people — students, lecturers, staff and visitors — who live and work in more than 250 buildings that span over 8,600 acres. In fact, Duke’s bustling campus in Durham, North Carolina, can seem almost like a microcosm of a small city. Only in this city, everything must work together seamlessly and securely.

Now Duke has updated one of its most important services — its physical student ID card, the DukeCard — by adding it to Student ID in Apple Wallet on iPhone. With Student ID, Duke students can access services across campus using the devices they already know, use, love and carry with them at all times.

With a simple tap of iPhone or Apple Watch, students can securely access their hall bedrooms, buy food, wash clothing, attend sports events and more. With this added convenience, students can focus on what’s really important: learning and preparing for the leadership roles of tomorrow.

“By pushing the boundaries with our technology, what we’re ultimately doing is helping the university achieve its mission, while providing a great experience for everybody at Duke.”
