Manoa One Card

The Mānoa One Card was designed by UH alumna Heather Brown.

With the swipe of a card, University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa students can purchase meals, borrow library books, use campus recreation facilities and attend football games. This multi-purpose identification card, known as the Mānoa One Card, is an essential card for all students. Issued to new students at the start of their first term, the card displays the name, photo and unique student number of its holder. In addition to verifying a student’s identity, the Mānoa One Card grants its holder many benefits on and off campus.

Getting your card

New students may obtain their Mānoa One Card from the Campus Center Ticket, Information and ID Office after creating a UH email account and registering for courses. All holds or financial obligations must be cleared before the card can be issued. In order to receive your card, be sure to bring along one of the following forms of identification: driver’s license, state-issued photo ID card, passport or military ID card. All new students are entitled to an initial card at no charge; however, replacing a lost or damaged card costs $25. 


The Mānoa One Card doubles as a bus pass and is a great way for students to cut down on travel costs. For the mandatory $50 transportation fee, students receive a semester-long U-Pass sticker on their card. The sticker allows students to have unlimited rides on the city bus system for the entire semester. To renew a U-Pass sticker, students must go to the Ticket Office at the beginning of each term. 

Campus Center Complex

The Mānoa One Card can be used for several discounts at the Campus Center. Through the Ticket Office, students can purchase movie passes, athletic event tickets and concert tickets at a reduced cost. Students can also receive discounts on passport photo, fax and lamination services as well. Furthermore, admission to the Kennedy Theatre and Orvis Auditorium is discounted. 

The card allows students to attend social events hosted at the Campus Center Complex (Campus Center, Hemenway Hall and the Warrior Recreation Center). Popular events hosted throughout the year include movie nights and Cram Jam, the university’s annual late-night study event held during finals week. The card can also be used for the Leisure Program, allowing students to rent low-cost equipment and enroll in leisure classes. 

At the Campus Center Computer Lab and Lounge, students may use the printer at 7 cents per page compared to Sinclair and Hamilton’s 10 cents per page. Below Campus Center is the UH Mānoa Bookstore, which offers deals for discounted software to students with a valid ID card. 

Athletic Complex

If you are looking for a place to work out, the Mānoa One Card grants access to the Warrior Recreation Center, which contains over 120 cardio machines, an indoor running track and two interchangeable basketball and volleyball courts. Other athletic venues the card grants access to include the Duke Kahanamoku Aquatic Complex, Klum Gym and the tennis courts. Here, students can participate in UH Mānoa Intramural Sports, where intramural basketball, volleyball, tennis, badminton and ping pong are played on select days.

Mānoa Dining Services

Food vendors on campus accept the Mānoa One Card as payment through the university’s Dining Dollars program. Students may add Dining Dollars to their student account or purchase a meal plan through the Mānoa Dining Services website. The ID card can be used at any of the following locations: Campus Center Food Court, Pizza Hut, Starbucks, Jamba Juice, Ba-Le, Stir Fresh, Simply To Go and The Market. 


Need to borrow a book for class or do some research? The Mānoa One Card gives students the privilege to borrow books and use the printing services at Hamilton and Sinclair library. In addition, the ID can be used to reserve group study rooms on the second floor of Hamilton. At Sinclair, the ID provides access to the library after 9 p.m. on weekdays as well as the Wong Audiovisual Center, which houses a large number of feature films among other video and audio media. 


With the ID, students can access the Language Labs at Moore Hall. At the lab, students can use specialized software that allows for language audio listening and voice recording. In addition, an ID is required to take unit mastery course labs at the Department of Linguistics. 

The Mānoa One Card also functions off-campus as a means of identification for stores that offer deals and discounts aimed toward college students. Refer to the Mānoa Now app in the App Store or on Google Play.
