What is it?

The Pioneer One-Card, or P-Card, is the college campus ID system. Your P-Card is a photo identification card that will allow you to access many services at Grinnell College. Use your card in the Dining Halls, the College Book Store, The Spencer Grill, vending machines, the Libraries, Mail Services, copy machines, laundry facilities, and other locations on campus.
For students, the Pioneer One-Card is a combined photo ID and proximity card. The proximity feature allows students to use the card to gain access to their residence halls. For staff and faculty, employee family members and campus visitors the Pioneer One-Card is a photo ID which provides the convenience of a Campus Cash account.
