Non-Student Visitors


Sponsored Affiliates

Examples may include: Volunteer Coaches and Visiting Faculty, Researchers, Scientists and Interns.

If a visiting person's affiliation with Dartmouth College is defined as sponsored, they are not automatically eligible for an ID card. The initial Sponsored Account provisions are for College NetID and email. (Affiliation can be identified using the Dartmouth College directory lookup. Sponsored individuals will show as "Affl: SPON".)

Sponsored accounts are not automatically provisioned for access/ID cards. The sponsoring department will need to request an access ID card account. 

To request access for a visitor’s purpose on campus:
The supervising department for the new visiting person must submit a work order through Facilities Operations and Management (FO&M).  Contact Work Control for guidance.

ID Photo

Photos cannot be uploaded online for Sponsored Accounts. There is no mechanism to receive photos for Sponsored Accounts. Photos for Sponsored Account persons will need to be captured in-office after the work order to create the access account has been completed. Photos can be emailed to

Campus Purchases

Sponsored affiliates are not eligible for employee purchase accounts, meal packs or prepaid Discretionary. Purchases can be made at the location with credit cards.


The supervising department for the new contractor/vendor must create a work order through Facilities Operations and Management (FO&M) for the creation of an ID card account.

After the work order has been completed, a vendor ID card account should be available. Then the contractor/vendor can visit the Dartmouth Card Office to obtain their ID card. Door access can be prepared by the departments responsible at any point after the ID account has been created. Please note: vendor ID cards are only for building access.

All individuals seeking to obtain a new ID card must show proof of identity. A valid form of photo-ID, such as a passport or state-ID/Driver's License, must be presented. After the ID photo is taken and logged to the system, reprinted ID cards do not require this verification.
