The University of Kentucky is excited to bring the experience of adding the WildCard Mobile ID to your Apple device or Android phone. With this feature, students can use an iPhone, Apple Watch or smartphone on campus to access buildings, attend campus events and make payments at most locations where the WildCard ID can be used on UK's Lexington campus. Simply tap your iPhone, Apple Watch or smartphone at the same reader where you use your physical student or employee ID card.

Students can now set up their WildCard Mobile ID.

Faculty and staff will have the ability to set up their WildCard Mobile ID later in the academic year, date to be announced.
