Your First Week

Getting your University Identification Number

The University "U" number is an 8-digit numerical identifier that is used in place of Social Security number at Pace University. Below are the instructions on how to find your UID number:

To access your UID, you will need to log into the portal.

  • Go to the Pace Portal
  • Type your Pace username and password
  • Click “LOGIN”
  • You will be directed to the Pace Portal homepage. Click on blue button “Employee Dashboard” on the top right.
  • Click on “My Profile” which is located under your name on the top left corner.
  • The University ID (UID) will be displayed on the left side of the screen under your name.

ID Photo Online Submission

Please do this after you have received your UID number and prior to arrival on Pace’s campus (on or after your hire date).

After activating your Pace account, your next step will be to upload a photograph through our online photo submission process that will be used for your official Pace Identification Card. Your Pace ID card will provide you with access to the campus.

  • Log-in to the system.
  • Click on “Profile” in the top left corner.
  • Click on “Submit New Photo."
  • Upload or take a new photo.
    • You can click on “Add Photo” or drag a photo into place.
  • Once the photo is uploaded click “Submit."

Please keep in mind there are several select requirements that the photos must meet to get approval. Please visit the Online Photo ID Submission webpage to view the requirements.

When submitting your photo, please be sure that the full name and pace email address entered under the “Profile” page matches the information given to Human Resources exactly. If not, you may experience some difficulty resulting in an error message.

Once submitted, an Auxiliary Services Staff member will review your photo submission within 48 hours. Once you receive an approval email, please visit the Auxiliary Services office on the campus closest to you. Below are the locations and contact information for each office. For inquiries, please email Auxiliary Services.
