How do I get my OneCard?



Getting a card

It’s simple to get your Brookdale OneCard! The OneCard Production office is located in the Warner Student Life Center, Room 202 (upper level) on the Lincroft campus and in the Freehold campus at the Self Check-In Kiosk. For students, proof of current registration and a valid photo ID is required to receive a Brookdale OneCard.  For employees, an authorization form from Human Resources is required to receive a Brookdale OneCard.

You may also have an ID card photo taken at any of the Regional Locations, Hazlet, Long Branch, Neptune and Wall in the Student Success Center. Your photo will be e-mailed to the ID card office and your card will be sent via inter-office mail to the Student Success Center where your photo was taken.


There is no charge for your first Brookdale OneCard. There are also no transaction fees for purchases or for deposits. There is no charge for a legal name change. There is a $15 card replacement fee for lost or damaged cards. The replacement fee is waived with a police report for stolen cards.


A valid photo ID (driver’s license or passport) is required to receive a Brookdale OneCard. Fast Start, Dual Enrollment and Early College High School students may use an official High School identification card as a valid ID.
