Lost GOCards

All Georgetown One Cards (GOCards) received by the Lost and Found are sent to the GOCard Office at the opening of business Monday through Friday.

To inquire about a lost GOCard, please contact the GOCard Office directly, at (202) 687-2700, located on the ground floor of Darnall Hall (G-3). To check to see if your card was received by Department of Public Safety, please call (202) 687-4343 Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

You should deactivate your GOCard as soon as possible upon discovering that it is missing. This can be accomplished in several convenient ways. You can visit the online card office website and deactivate your GOCard on-line 24 hours a day. Once deactivated, no one will be able to use your card. When you obtain your new GOCard, your Debit Account balances will be available immediately. A lost card does not mean lost money, if it is reported promptly. Refer to the GOCard Terms and Conditions for further details on lost and stolen cards.
