Ventra U-Pass distribution days/times are announced before the start of Fall and Spring semesters. Look for signs on campus and e-mail notices outlining date, times and location or visit the Campus Card Office web page. Ventra U-Passes cannot be obtained through the CTA, only through Columbia's Campus Card Office.
You must present a valid Campus Card to obtain your Ventra U-Pass. If you do not pick up your Ventra U-Pass during the distribution dates, the pre-printed Ventra U-Passes will be available at the Campus Card Office. The Campus Card Office is located at 600 S. Michigan Ave., on the 3rd floor.
