Services for Students: Getting A Library Card

The UHV Library offers a number of services to students

Victoria College Library Cards

If you have not yet been issued a Victoria College student ID, the UHV Library can issue you a library card. VC students are encouraged to get their student IDs before coming to University Commons.
Library cards will be issued to enrolled students under the following guidelines:
  • Your name must appear on enrollment rosters provided to the library by the registrar. If your name is not on the roster, you must have a valid fee statement to verify current enrollment.
  • Please have your Texas Driver's License with you to verify your address.
  • Your library card will be updated with a semester validation sticker each semester you are enrolled.
  • Replacement fee is $3.00.

UHV Library Cards

The Paw Pass that students receives upon registration also serves as your library card. To check out items from the library or use the computers, you will need to stop at the Service Desk on the 2nd floor of University Commons and complete an information card to have your student record updated for use.


*If you did not receive a Paw Pass, you may get a temporary library card at the Library Circulation desk. The Paw Pass is issued to all UHV first year students, sophomores living in campus housing, and students who request them in person at Jag Hall in Victoria.
For a replacement Paw Pass, please contact Resident Life


Questions regarding library cards should be addressed to Greg Garcia, Circulation Supervisor.
