​Your Mountain Cat Card, also known as your student ID, is the tool that every student, faculty, and staff member needs on their first day to access essential campus services. Your Mountain Cat Card is programmed to give you access to your residence hall, meal plan, and other campus facilities. 

The Pitt-Johnstown ID Center is located in Room 151 of the Student Union. In addition to Mountain Cat Cards, the center also generates badges for security purposes to employees who work in varying locations and to outside contractors authorized to work on campus.Pitt student ID

The Mountain Cat Card serves as a means for students to access meal plans and their campus residence hall. Students may add funds to their individual Mountain Cat Cash account at the Business Office, 125 Blackington Hall. Mountain Cat Cash is used for making purchases at all campus eating venues and at the Bookstore.

Do not punch any holes in your ID card as it may cause the card to malfunction. Lost ID cards should be reported to the ID Center immediately.
