North Park University ID Photo

Welcome to North Park University!

As a North Park University student or employee, you can get a photo for your North Park University ID card at the Campus Safety Office, (building #8 on the campus map).

You will be required to show an official picture ID (driver’s license, state ID, former school ID or a valid, unexpired passport) when you pick up your North Park ID card.

Please note: These ID cards are for our Chicago campus students and employees. If you are part of a program that is not held on our Chicago campus, please speak with your program director or supervisor regarding the need for a North Park University ID.
