The information which is soted in your new card was changed. Therefore, please take the following procedures after you receive it.
- If you are an Coop electronic money user, the initial setting of electronic money in your new IC card is required. Please bring your new card to a Coop shop so that the Coop can initialize the setting and transfer the points and balance which was saved in your former IC card to the new one.
- If you enter or leave some buildings or rooms with your IC card, it is not generally required to register your new IC card again. However, in some buildings, reregistration may be required. Please inquire on this issue of the administrative office at your department which deals with this building entrance management system.
Please report the matter to the department you belong to or to someone in a department close by. In addition, the Registrar and Planning Section of the Education Promotion Department (Yoshida South Campus, Yoshida South Building No. 1, 1F), the Employee Section of the General Affairs Department, (Main Campus, Main Building 5F) and the ICT Support Center (Yoshida South Campus, the Academic Center for Computing and Media Studies, South Building 1F) will accept the card you found.
Your IC card is something lent to you by the university, so we will ask you to pay for the cost of reissuing your card. Specifically, purchase a coupon for an IC card at the Kyoto University Co-op, give the coupon to the person in charge of IC cards in your department, and apply to have your card reissued.
When you buy a coupon for an IC card, please state the kind of IC card you need- 1) an IC Student ID (FeliCa card) 2) an IC Employee ID and IC Authentication Card or 3) a Facilities Use ID.

We introduced Authentication IC cards to strengthen physical security and information security at the university and to make university life more convenient for students, faculty, and staff. Until now, you have used your ID for personal identification. Now you can also use an Authentication IC card in a number of other ways-- as an ID for using university facilities, implementing the control for entering and leaving a building,making electronic money payments, and so on.
Authentication IC Card is not a card for personal identification. You can use university facilities with it, and you can use it to make electronic payments to the university Co-op.
Your IC card not only contains the important personal information on its face, such as your photo and name, but it also has important personal information stored on it. So, you must never lend or give it to another person. Furthermore, your IC card is a sensitive, state of the art electronic device, so do not bend it, press it down, put heavy weight on it, or handle it in other rough ways that would damage it. If you lose or deliberately damage the card, or if it is stolen, you must pay the cost of reissuing the card.
A1. If you put several noncontact IC cards in your wallet together, they can be electromagnetically coupled. As a result, an IC card reader may not read their data. This problem occurs particularly with cards of the same type, such as ICOCA, PiTaPa、nanako、and WAON. Since it is possible your card will not be readable, put it in a separate wallet from your other cards.
A2. There is a commercial soft-magnetic film which you can put between IC
cards.This film might prevent their electromagnetically coupling even in the
same wallet. Please buy this type of film on your own.
For example, the following product can be used for this purpose: http://flux.bz/pass-case.html
Some wallets contain a plasticizing agent in the soft, transparent vinyl of the wallet. This agent can melt the printed ink on your IC card. Put your card in your wallet so that the card face does not contact the vinyl of the wallet. In particular, if the photo or ink on the face of the card becomes blurred, you will have to have your card reissued. In such a case, please contact the person in your department in charge of handling IC card applications.
The IC card has information written on a magnetic stripe in the same format used up to now on your former card. Thus, please use the magnetic stripe on your new IC card in the same way for the services you have received up to now.
