USD Safe App Icon

USD Safe

The USD Safe app, created by AppArmor, works both on and off campus. It serves as a virtual escort to students, providing real-time location information to emergency contacts and the University Police Department. USD has also added a quick health assessment module to USD Safe to help increase health and safety awareness with potential exposures to COVID-19.


The USD Safe app increases safety on campus, but it is not a substitute for standard emergency procedures.

DUO application icon


Two-factor authentication is the single most effective tool for combatting Phishing attacks. It provides a second layer of security to any type of login.

USD uses Duo Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) to achieve this added security in our university community. By requiring two different channels of authentication, the university protects students, faculty and staff from attackers that exploit stolen usernames and passwords to steal your data.

Your Coyote Card is your most important piece of identification at USD. You can use it to pay for meals, check books out from the library, access your residence hall door, use laundry facilities, print on campus and more. And all of these features are available through the mobile version, too! Coyote Card Mobile is designed with convenience in mind.


Please note that Coyote Card Mobile does not replace your physical Coyote Card.  A Coyote Card is still required, it must be carried at all times and upon request must be shown or surrendered to USD Officials.
