Welcome, incoming First-Year students and new Transfer students! One of the highlights of Orientation is picking up your shiny new Columbia College ID card.
Not only will you be able to add “Columbia Cash” to your card to make purchases in the Bookstore or pay for printing in the Library and other Campus labs, your Columbia College Chicago ID (aka your “Campus Card”) is also your Columbia College Chicago Library card!
Your Campus Card is all you need to check out books, movies, and CDs and access a variety of online databases – including articles and streaming movies – available to you through the Columbia College Chicago Library.
