Faculty & Staff

Learn all about how to obtain and manage your Georgia Tech employee ID.

Welcome to Georgia Tech! Now that you are a new employee at the university, you should complete the process to receive your BuzzCard as it serves as your source of identification around campus and acts as your key to much of campus life.

New Employees

One of the first steps in your new employee orientation is to get your BuzzCard, as it serves as your campus identification and is your pass to all facets of employment at Georgia Tech including:

  • Building & door access
  • Parking Deck entry
  • Time Clock entry (Swipe In/Out)
  • Faculty Staff Dining Funds

Contact us for more details or come visit us on the 2nd floor of Barnes & Noble @Georgia Tech in Technology Square.

Obtaining Your BuzzCard

    Before you can be issued a BuzzCard, you must have a Georgia Tech Identification Number (gtID #). Your gtID# is a universal number that identifies you throughout the various campus departments, while the BuzzCard is your physical identification card. A BuzzCard cannot be issued without a gtID#.

    If you do not already have a gtID#, an authorized department administrator or campus sponsor must submit a gtID# request on your behalf.

    Visit the BuzzCard Center Monday thru Friday from 9 AM – 4 PM*. For assistance, please call the BuzzCard Center at 404-894-2899.
