BenCard

The BenCard is Benedictine University’s faculty, staff and student identification card. Every Benedictine student, faculty and staff member is issued a BenCard, which serves as your official University photo identification card – plus a whole lot more!

The BenCard is required as identification when using University facilities or participating in University-sponsored events. For students, the BenCard is your key to campus living.

Use your BenCard in the following ways:

  • As a library card to access electronic resources and check out materials at the Benedictine University Library
  • To eat in the Krasa Dining Room, the Coal Ben and the Kindlon Cafe.
  • To gain admittance to your residence hall (resident students only).
  • For students, faculty and staff to gain access to the Benedictine University Fitness Center.

The BenCard is user-friendly, multi-functional and secure. All students, staff, and faculty are issued a BenCard regardless of their banking choice. Lisle campus and Moser Center faculty and staff and all students may pick up their BenCard at the Benedictine University Police office located in the lower level of the parking garage. The office is open 24 hours per day, seven days per week.

You MUST bring your driver’s license and show it to the University Police for verification when picking up your BenCard.

All students, faculty and staff must have their PeopleSoft ID number with them when picking up a BenCard. 

Students should contact Enrollment Services at (630) 829-6500 if an ID number is needed.

On-line students can send an e-mail to UniversityPolice@ben.edu with their name, address, student ID number, and a photo (just a head shot) in the jpeg format. The BenCard will be mailed to the student within 3-4 days.

The BenCard is yours to use, but it remains the property of Benedictine University. The card may be used for such purposes as the University designates and may be revoked at any time. It is not transferable under any condition and should not be used by any other individual at any time. This card must be carried at all times while on University property. The card must be presented and/or surrendered upon demand by University officials; failure to do so, lending of this card to anyone, or other misuse, is a violation of this policy and may result in suspension of the card. The card is void upon termination of enrollment and/or employment. 

If your BenCard is lost, there is a University Police reprinting fee/replacement cost of $50 for resident student cards and $10 for all other cards.

Aly Sivji will discuss testing in Python. Tests ensure our program works as intended and that changes do not break existing functionality. However, these benefits are not free; we need to have a plan to write our application and a plan to test it.

Event Description:

Featuring acclaimed children's author and Benedictine Artist in Resident, Crystal Chan.

Crystal will share how she landed on a specific method of compassion-and its resulting commitment to realizing equality in this country. This type of compassion has impacted her activism, transformed her writing, and allowed her to hold and explore viewpoints that conflict with her own. She discovered how compassion healed relationships, fostered her own physical and mental health, and given her a glimpse of transcendence. Join us to learn how you can design a path for yourself.

A reception will follow the lecture. Free Admission and Open to the Public.
