Emeritus ID Card

New and existing Emeriti may exchange their current ID card for an Emeritus card at Access Services, Lower Level. Office hours are 9:00 am - 4:00 pm Monday through Friday. You must show as Emeritus in the CWRU Directory before an Emeritus ID card can be issued. If you are not sure if you are officially Emeritus, please contact the Provost Office at provost@case.edu or 216.368.4389.

Your new ID card will only grant you access to default areas and your parking areas (see below). If any additional access is needed, it must be requested by your department. For questions on who to contact for your area, please email Access Services at access@case.edu or call 216-368-2273 during regular business hours.

Emeritus Parking


To obtain your emeritus parking permit, you must complete a parking application that includes your vehicle information (license plate number, make, model, year, color, etc.). If you currently hold a parking permit, you must return it before we can issue the emeritus hang tag.

Please read the following information carefully.

  1. Emeritus parking privileges are offered to those who have been granted emeritus status by Case Western Reserve University. They are not extended to spouses or relatives and remain in effect only for the lifetime of the person to whom the emeritus parking hang tag is issued.
  2. Only one hang tag is issued. If the tag is misplaced or lost, please contact Access Services for instructions on how to replace your items. A replacement fee for both the hang tag and access card will apply.
