CCSU Card Office

One of the first things every new student, faculty, and staff member must do when they arrive on campus is get their university identification card, otherwise known as the Blue Chip Card. The Blue Chip Card is a necessary and important part of the CCSU campus experience.

 The card is your CCSU identification card, meal plan card, library card, and computer lab access card. If you add money to your Blue Chip account, you may use the card to make purchases at vending machines, the CCSU Bookstore, public-use copier and laser printing in the computer lab, laundry machines, on-campus dining locations (Student Center Dining, Nutmeg Room), and at off-campus vendor locations. You can also pay for library and parking fines, or any other University fees. There are two (2) accounts associated with a Blue Chip Card; the first is a debit account, the second is an optional credit union account, the second is an optional credit union account with Achieve Financial Credit Union.

The Blue Chip Card is not just an ID, it is campus everything card! Use it to:

  • Access various campus locations, such as parking garages, residence halls, classrooms, and offices
  • Purchase meals anywhere on campus (and receive a 20% discount at certain locations on campus)
  • Purchase meals, goods, and services from a variety of off campus merchants
  • Borrow resources from the Elihu Burritt Library
  • Pay for Photocopies
  • Pay for computer printing
  • Make purchases at the Bookstore in the Student Center
  • Make purchases from campus snack and soda machines
  • Make payments to the Bursar's Office and other CCSU departments.

 University Health Services

 Under the direction of a Medical Director, University Health Service offers medical services to all students for maintenance of health and the evaluation and treatment of acute illnesses and injuries. In addition, the staff provides contraceptive counseling, evaluation of sexually transmitted infections, travel health information, mental health screening (working closely with our Counseling Office), and a flu clinic in late fall. Patients are seen by appointment only, except in the event of an emergency.

Appointments are free. Many services are provided at no cost; however, some services, such as in-house prescriptions, certain lab tests, and immunization updates, require a minimal fee. Certain laboratory, X-ray costs and prescriptions filled at an outside pharmacy are covered through the student's particular health insurance plan. Referrals to appropriate specialty consultants are made as needed.

Full-time students are required to submit a completed medical form that includes a medical history, immunization data and a physical examination by a health care provider prior to registration at the University. All matriculated part-time students are required by the University to have up-to-date immunization records for measles and rubella consistent with State of Connecticut Department of Health Service guidelines (part-time forms available on our Web site). Failure to submit the required medical information may result in the withholding of registration schedules and/or housing assignments.

General information (832-1925); medical appointments (832-1926). Hours: Monday through Friday, 9:30am-4pm; closed from 12-1pm (subject to change). University Health Service is located in the Marcus White Annex, next to the computer lab.
