Purchasing a Membership

  • Students may purchase a membership online.
  • If a membership is purchased for a current student with an ID Card, the card must be replaced after the Student Advantage® purchase is complete in order to update membership information on the ID Card. The student must visit The HUB (lower level, Warner Hall) in order to exchange the old ID Card for an updated card with the Student Advantage® membership information.
  • Membership may also be purchased at The HUB. 
  • Activate your membership online. Once purchased, it may take up to 24 hours before you can activate your membership. (If you are transferred to a generic site that isn't specific to Carnegie Mellon students, you may still register your card using the security code: 717).
