Campus Cash

Besides being your valid form of NYU identification, your NYUCard may be activated like a debit account, Campus Cash; a convenient alternative to cash. The Campus Cash account is provided to students (taking credit bearing courses), faculty, and staff at New York University. Working much like a bank debit card, money can be placed in an account that can be drawn upon for purchase of goods and services at many locations on and off campus. For a current list of locations, visit Merchant Locations.
