Access to Buildings

Student ID Cards

Student ID Cards are needed in order to borrow books from the CMU Library, gain access to the Dining Hall for meals, and give proof of student status in order to gain a variety of student discounts around Winnipeg. Student ID Cards can be obtained during Welcome Week for $11 (charged to the student's CMU account).

Students will be charged $20 for any replacement cards. Please see the south side receptionist for details.

Property Use and Expectations

CMU is both a public place of study and work, and, for many members of the community, a home. Students are expected to treat CMU property with the respect due to public facilities and with the same care they would treat property in their own homes. CMU property will be subject to normal wear and tear and, occasionally, to accidental damage. Any damage to CMU property (accidental or otherwise) should be reported promptly to the Maintenance Department. Students will be held financially responsible for any willful property damage, as well as damage resulting from careless or reckless behaviour.
