Gatorlink Account Basics

Gator 1 Card General Information

  • Gator 1 is a campus identification/security card.
  • Everyone on campus needs one.
  • Just getting the card does not activate it for library use; HSC students must go through this separate activation process.
  • The Gator 1 system is also used for paying for such things as copying and printing in the libraries. An account may be set up and money added to it electronically for purchases ranging from vending machines to food plans.
  • More information available at Gator 1 Central
