What is The Bay Card?
The Bay Card is CSU East Bay's campus ID card for employees and students. It identifies someone as a member of the CSU East Bay community and can be used for a variety of activities on campus.
In addition to being your primary form of identification on campus, it is also your campus library card. It can be used to check out equipment in various departments and shown for entry at campus events.
