The NYUCard is a must for all NYU Faculty, Staff and Students. The NYUCard should be carried at all times while on campus. The card, which identifies you as Faculty, Staff or Student, entitles you to various privileges and potential uses on campus. Your NYUCard entitles you to access Academic Building, Residence Hall, as well as campus transportation. Your NYUCard also allows you to access your NYU Printing service and acts as a stored value card to purchase food in the canteen located on B1 and the cafe located on 2F in Academic Building.
Do Not Lend This Card to Anyone at Any time for Any Reason.
You can be subject to disciplinary proceedings if you are involved in fraudulent use of a NYUCard.
If you are a current, registered student and the date on your NYUCard has expired or is about to expire, you must have the Registrar's Office update your information in order to have a new card issued to you.
For employees and affiliates, you must have Human Resources update your information, in order to be issued a replacement NYUCard. Electronic access privileges are assigned on a semester basis and are based on several factors; therefore, your card may not work even if the card date is valid.
Common reasons for your electronic access privileges to be deactivated are unenrolling from classes, not being enrolled in the current semester, or by no longer being a matriculated NYU student. Please check with the Command Center for a status update.
The NYUCard Center located in Command Center of Public Safety in room 118 of the Academic Building is open 24/7. The NYUCard Center staff can assist you by producing new ID cards, generating replacement ID cards, and addressing any access-related issues that you might experience.
● To request a new NYUCard, please bring with you government issued identification with a current photo (e.g. a passport), and your N number or NetID.
● Community members who need to replace a lost NYUCard will have the CNY150 replacement fee billed by cash.
It is important to not punch a hole in your NYUCard, since the NYUCard is a proximity card that includes a microchip and an antenna, punching a hole in your card will damage the microchip or antenna, rendering it unreadable.
