Your CapCard is your official CapU identification card for use on campus, keep it with you! It functions as your Library Card and provides you access to certain classrooms depending on the program that you are enrolled in.

You’ll need to present your CapCard on campus when you:

  • are taking mid-term/final exams;
  • access printing services or check out books or online resources at the Library;
  • request transcripts or other services from the Registrar’s Office; and
  • access services at the Cashier’s Office

You may also be required to present your CapCard to Transit Police as proof-of-eligibility for the UPass BC Program.

Getting your CapCard

Getting your CapCard looks different now as in-person services at the CapCard Centre have been suspended due to Capilano University's COVID-19 Response.

You can now apply for your CapCard remotely by filling the Online CapCard Application Form.

We will notify you after your CapCard has been issued and provide you with instructions on how to pick up your new card. You may also request to have your CapCard mailed to you in the CapCard Application Form.

If your CapCard has been lost or damaged you can request a replacement by email to supportservices@capilanou.ca.

Sunshine Coast Campus students

Please attend campus to submit a request for a CapCard, or submit an online request through the CapCard Application Form above.

Using your CapCard for photocopying

Your CapCard holds your PaperCut account for access to the photocopiers on campus. You can load money onto your at one of the print pay stations by the front counter in the Library.

Lost or stolen cards

Report your lost or stolen card to the CapCard Centre, and check with Security to see whether it has been handed in.

If you do need to replace it, you’ll need to start from the beginning again (see "Getting your CapCard" above) to get a replacement card.
