The RU Express ID card is the official identification card for Radford University. It is used for access to meal plans, to make purchases from vending and snack machines, for access to laundry facilities, as payment for printing in computer labs, and also serves as a building key for all residence halls and several academic areas.  In addition to these on-campus uses, there are off-campus merchants that accept the RU Express card as a method of payment for student convenience.  Learn More »
