Borrow a Griz Card Reader


Request to borrow a Griz Card reader for assessment purposes, validate status, or to accept UMoney on a short-term basis. 

Examples of activity reader usage include Career Services taking attendance at Career Fairs and UC Student Involvement & Leadership collecting information on attendees at various events.


You will need to know how many readers you need and the dates of your event. 

How to request

Please click “Request Service” at the right hand side of the screen


There is no charge to check out a reader.

Once a reader is picked up, it is your responsibility. If issued for a multi-day or overnight event, it is expected the reader(s) will be stored in a secure area. If it is returned late, you may be subject to fees. If the reader is lost or damaged, the requester of the service will be held financially responsible until your organization replaces the reader at the current rate. As of February 2018, the cost is $1,698 for Blackboard devices.


UM faculty, staff, students, affiliates
