The Cal 1 Card: access to UC Berkeley

Do you remember your Orientation Day? That was the day you took the picture that decided how you would hold your ID card for the next four years: face up or face down. Through any obstacles you may experience in your time here at UC Berkeley, your Cal 1 Card remains a constant — something you rely on to access the multitude of services the campus provides. Even if you loose it, you never need to fret, for it is always replaceable, and you’ve probably memorized your SID number … right?

Never leave home without this key to campus life, and you’ll be able to use your Cal 1 Card in all the possible ways we at the Clog have outlined below.
