Redesigned JWU IDs
This summer, the Johnson & Wales University ID card was redesigned. New JWU faculty, staff and students arriving to campus after August 20 are being issued the new ID card.Returning faculty and staff do not need to replace their JWU ID card.

The new design more prominently displays the cardholder’s photograph and name for easier identification; it also reflects our new brand campaign. Attached is an example of the redesigned JWU ID card. For questions, please contact JWU ID Services at 401-598-1433.
