The Universities at Shady Grove (USG) is committed to creating and maintaining an environment in which all persons that participate in USG programs and activities, perform work, or provide services can learn and work together in a safe and secure environment.

To that end, USG with the support of their nine institution partners, has implemented a USG ID policy which 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 situation arise. Students, faculty, and staff can stop by the SAS Suite to obtain your USG ID.
