Gate Card - Colgate University Student IDs Skip Navigation

’Gate Card

Do your laundry, dine on campus, or shop downtown. The ’Gate Card is more than your school ID.

What a ’Gate Card Can Do

Purchases:
Use your 'Gate Card for purchases at the Bookstore, C-Store, Coop, and mailroom, as well as vending and laundry machines, library copiers, and participating area merchants.

Meal Plans:
Present your 'Gate Card for entry into all campus dining halls. Review available meal plans.

Key:
Several buildings on campus are kept secure by requiring you to swipe your 'Gate Card at the door.

Declining Balance Account

Deposit money into your account in a variety of ways:
  • Colgate University payroll deductions.
  • Log into the 'Gate Card website.
  • Use the Value Deposit Terminals located at O'Connor and Case Library (cash only).
  • Bring or mail your deposit to the Accounting Office (located in the James B. Colgate building).

'Gate Card Care

  • Don't tamper with the picture or information on the card.
  • Keep your card away from magnets, computers, and cell phones.
  • Keep the card away from excessive heat.
  • Bending, scratching, or punching holes in the card may render it unreadable.
  • Don't put the card through the washing machine.
  • Above all, do not lose your card, as the encoded information is yours alone.
