CBORD Mobile ID is an app designed to be a mobile phone version of your Wildcard. From within this app, you can open doors, use a vending machine, mark attendance at an event or class, and many more uses with the flexibility of CBORD’s CS Gold campus card system.

CBORD Mobile ID is available as an app from the App Store or Google Play. Once downloaded, students, staff or faculty open the app to use their smartphones to access readers instead of presenting their Wildcards’. An enhancement added in April will extend the application use to laundry and vending readers. Students, staff or faculty can simply enter the CBORD Mobile ID Location Number (found on the Location ID decal at each enabled location) or use the select function on the app to choose a machine then swipe the card icon on their smart phone. The transaction is completed exactly as it would with a Wildcard.
