MToken Collection Centers
Locations where you can return unneeded MTokens.
To get a hardware MToken
Go to ITS Access and Accounts, Administrative Services Building (ASB), Suite 2218, for hardware MTokens. Take your Mcard with you. You can request software tokens online via the MToken Service Center Online.
The MToken Service Center website is only accessible from a U-M network. If you are connecting from a non-university network, turn on the appropriate Virtual Private Network (VPN) for your campus. See Use a Secure Internet Connection for details.
If you have an MToken that you no longer need, return it to ITS so it can be disposed of in an environmentally appropriate manner. Send it via campus mail to ITS Access & Accounts, 2019 Administrative Services Building (ASB), campus zip: 1432. If you prefer, you can drop it off in person at any of the MToken Collection Centers. Some units have buckets available for turning in unneeded MTokens.
