Visitor & Guest BuzzCard
Learn all about how to obtain a Georgia Tech visitor / guest BuzzCard
For people who are not permanent faculty, staff or students on Georgia Tech’s campus, we offer a Visitor/Guest card. People who need to access certain services at GT, but do not hold a traditional position that would qualify for a BuzzCard, can use the Visitor/Guest card instead.
Contact us for more details or come visit us on the 2nd floor of Barnes & Noble @ Georgia Tech in Technology Square.
Who may need a Visitor/Guest card (when properly sponsored):
- Visiting professors
- Visiting scholars
- Guest lecturers
- Temporary employees
- Contractors (see guidance below)
The following are required in order for visitors and guests to obtain a BuzzCard:
- Photo ID (government issued state ID/driver’s license or passport)
- Payment (if guest is responsible for payment; credit/debit only)
In order to obtain the gtID, a request must be made by the sponsoring Georgia Tech department.
Affiliates are processed through GT Human Resources and undergo background screening.
A GTID will be generated for the affiliate. Human Resources will be notified when the requested GTID has been generated.
Human Resources can notify the Affiliate that they can now visit the BuzzCard center for photo session and BuzzCard production during normal BuzzCard Center hours.
The Building Manager will assign and maintain door access privileges to the Affiliate BuzzCard, as appropriate.
The Department that hires the contractor service must request a GTID number for each individual who will deliver services on campus. Each department has an assigned GTID Requestor that is authorized to request a GTID here.
The GTID Requestor will be notified when the requested GTID has been generated.
The GTID Requestor or the person requesting the contractor service can notify the Contractor that they can visit the BuzzCard center for photo session and BuzzCard production during normal BuzzCard Center hours. The cost of the Contractor BuzzCard is $30.
The Building Manager will assign and maintain door access privileges to the Contractor BuzzCard, as appropriate.
