The Eagle ID is the official personal identification card of University of Wisconsin - La Crosse! Your Eagle ID Card is your permit to the campus, your key to everything you will need access to at UWL. The minute you step foot on campus, you will need it to enter your residence hall, access your dining plan, and pick up your textbooks. Eagle IDs do not expire as long as you are an active student enrolled in classes.
