At UH Mānoa, student identification cards are called Mānoa One Cards, which were first issued in the fall 2013 semester and are free. These are obtained at the Campus Center Ticket, Information and ID Office after a student has established a UH email account and registered for campus classes. All holds and financial obligations need to be cleared before a card can be issued to a student.
A valid form of identification — such as a state-issued driver’s license with a photo, state-issued photo ID, passport or military ID card — is required for a student to receive a card.
Uses of the Mānoa One Card range from discounts rentals to dining services:
Students who purchase the UPASS pay a fee when they register for classes. This pass — in the form of a sticker placed on the Mānoa One Card — allows students to ride TheBus when and where they want.
Students will need their cards to borrow items from Hamilton and Sinclair libraries. The cards are also needed to enter the libraries after 9 p.m.
DISCOUNTS FOR CAMPUS SERVICES
Many campus services, like the Leisure Center, will offer discounts for students who validate their IDs. At the Leisure Center, students are eligible for cheaper equipment rentals and leisure classes. Tickets to Kennedy Theatre productions will sometimes be sold at student rates with these cards.
KA LEO UH ID PROGRAM
These Mānoa One Cards can also get students deals outside of campus. There are many restaurants and shops where students can flash their IDs to receive benefits like a free drink or meal discount. Check the Ka Leo app directory for a complete listing of participating vendors.
ACCESS TO CAMPUS RESOURCES
A validated ID is required to access the Warrior Recreation Center and many of the computer labs on campus.
ACCESS TO CAMPUS EVENTS
Campus Center hosts numerous events throughout the year, such as free movie nights and dances, which require a UH ID to enter.
Any fee-paying student is eligible for discounted or free tickets to UH Mānoa athletic events. Free T-shirts or prizes are often given out to students who attend games and sit in the student sections.
When on campus, students will need to eat. The Mānoa One Card is used for meal transactions, such as swipes for meal plans and dining dollars.
