The Universities at Shady Grove (USG) is committed to creating and maintaining an environment where all persons participating in USG programs and activities, performing work, or providing services can learn and work together in a safe and secure environment.

To that end, USG, with the support of its nine institution partners, has implemented a USG ID policy that requires all students, faculty, and staff to obtain and carry a USG ID card anytime they are on campus.

USG IDs serve as a way to quickly identify students, faculty, and staff, safeguarding against inappropriate usage of campus facilities. More importantly, USG ID cards are linked to contact data that can be used to locate and contact members of the USG community should an emergency arise. Students, faculty, and staff can stop by the mailroom to obtain a USG ID.
