Retiree ID and Library Cards

In order to take advantage of Cal Connections -- discounts and offers arranged by the Retirement Center -- you must first obtain a retiree ID card. Cards are available at the Center, 101 University Hall, Berkeley. We hold drop-in hours daily between 1pm and 4pm, or you can call 510-642-5461 to order an ID card by mail. Check our webpage or your CenterPiece newsletter for a list of Cal Connections.

Once you have your retiree ID, you may take it, along with photo ID, to the Privileges desk at the entrance to the Main Stacks in the Doe Library, where you will be issued a Library Card for use in all campus libraries.
