University of America, you are entitled to a CUA student photo-identification card. To
receive one, you must go to the Office of Public Safety (121 Leahy Hall). You must be

card will enable you to use any of the CUA or consortium libraries (if validated at CUA
Mullen Library Circulation Desk), and to attend any of the campus functions that require
student identification. This ID card must be validated every semester. You are not
required to have a CUA ID card to attend courses at the GMU site, however you will need
one when you fulfill the residency requirement.

Mason University (Fenwick or George W. Johnson Center) Library, take your validated CUA ID
