ID Badges and Parking & Transportation

  • ID Badges for UVA Health

    Charlottesville Area

    UVA Health team members are required to wear identification badges. You will use your ID badge to clock in/out, if required, and to access various buildings and doors. You must obtain your ID badge during your first week of work, and before your first independent shift, so plan accordingly as your schedule allows. Please do not go to the ID Badge Office during any other in-person training, or during breaks in these trainings. For instance, if you have training scheduled for all day on Tuesday and Wednesday, you will need to go on Monday.

    Go to the ID Badge office to complete this process. You will need your 9-digit employee number (displayed to the right of your name on the Workday home page) and a photo ID (i.e., driver's license).The ID Badge Office is located in the West Complex. Hours of operation are 8:30 am to 4:15 pm Monday-Friday, and they close promptly. Please allow ample time to complete this task; you should expect to wait in line.

    The UVA Health ID Badge Office is on the 1st floor, Room M1205 of the West Complex.

    Once you have activated your account with UVA, you may follow the remote process to upload your ID badge photo. Please note that it takes 24-48 hours for photo upload to be available for printing on the ID badge.
