Tornado Print & Mail at Concordia University Texas is a valuable resource for everyone on campus, especially for students. The Tornado Print & Mail team is committed to helping students succeed at CTX by providing them with the services they need.

Student ID & Parking Permit

Your Concordia student ID is valuable because it enables you to do the following:

  • Access campus through gate
  • Access dining hall (if you have a meal plan)
  • Pick up packages mailed to you at campus
  • Apply for parking permit

Visit Tornado Print & Mail to get your student ID made, whether you're a new student or have lost your original student ID. Replacement IDs are $25 and can be paid with a credit card, cash or check.

You must also have a parking permit to park on campus. To complete the free parking permit form, you need to know your driver's license number, insurance information and license plate information.

Due to COVID-19, Tornado Print & Mail now offers contactless processes for obtaining ID cards and parking passes.

Printing Services

Tornado Print & Mail offers a variety of printing services, whether it's a color report you need for class or graduation invitations.

CTX students will be charged for color printing and other special projects. Tornado Print & Mail works to offer you the lowest price possible. However, be aware that the price varies based on the type of project and the quantity you need.
