THE UNIVERSITY OF TOLEDO NOW OFFERS Rocket Cards in apple wallet, google wallet and samsung wallet!

The University of Toledo and Transact are excited to share with students, faculty and staff that they can now use their iPhone, Apple Watch, Samsung Galaxy, or other eligible Android phones to conveniently, safely, and securely access campus buildings, meal plans, and more. UToledo is the fifth institution of higher learning in the State of Ohio to make this technology available to its faculty and staff. 

With Rocket Mobile IDs, the campus community has the option to reduce the number of times they touch a reader or hand their Rocket ID card to someone else.  With mobile credentialing, many actions that previously required a physical ID card will now be able to be completed using their iPhone, Apple Watch, Samsung Galaxy or other eligible Android phones. Simply place the mobile device near a reader to enter a building, check out library material, visit the Recreation Center, access your meal plan, make purchases at campus stores, and more.

“We are excited to bring this innovative technology to the UToledo Community. It allows us to distribute the official University ID along with a contactless ID in a secure manner. The mobile technology allows our campus community to interact with our services in a way that is more secure, more convenient, and totally frictionless. It is a real game changer,” said Brian Kulpa, Executive Director of Auxiliary Services.

“The Rocket Mobile ID is super convenient. I don't have to worry about forgetting my ID card when I leave my dorm for a quick minute.  For students it's nice because we always have our phones with us!” said E. Dennis,  undergraduate student.

Mobile Credentials on iPhone, Apple Watch, Samsung Galaxy, and other Android phones, provide an extra level of security and privacy so students, staff, and faculty do not need to worry about always having their physical ID card when they are enjoying campus life. If you misplace your iPhone or Apple Watch, you can use the following link to use the Find My app to immediately lock your device and help locate it. If you misplace your Android device, you can access and sign into your Google Account to flag your lost device.

 In addition, you can easily suspend your Rocket Mobile ID, if needed, through the Transact eAccounts app on either the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. Additionally, the Rocket Mobile ID on iPhone, Apple Watch, Samsung Galaxy or other eligible Android phones is protected by two factor authentication to ensure only the owner can access their account. 

The new mobile credential technology serves as a highly visible example to show prospective students that The University of Toledo is committed to introducing and utilizing the most innovative technology to meet their needs,” said Mike Dennis, Senior Associate Vice President for Finance.

To set up your Rocket Mobile ID, employees will need to complete the following:

  • Ensure you are set up for MultiFactor Authentication.
  • Request a Rocket Card from your MyUT portal if you have not already done so.
    • If ordering a new Rocket Card you will need to wait for confirmation that it has been printed before proceeding with the next step.
  • Download the Transact eAccounts app, authenticate with your university credentials and then add your Rocket Mobile ID to your Apple Wallet or Google Wallet.  For more information or help setting up your Rocket Mobile ID, please visit our FAQ page.
