NYU Campus Cash

Your NYUCard serves as more than just your student ID. It may be used like a debit card, too! It's called Campus Cash, and it's a convenient alternative to carrying cash. Working much like a bank debit card, you can place money on your NYU ID that can then be used to purchase goods and services at participating locations on and off campus. For more information, click here.

Center for Student Activities, Leadership, and Service
Kimmel Center, 60 Washington Square South, Suite 704

Did you miss Club Fest on January 29? Don't worry! If you're interested in becoming more involved with the NYU community, you can check out The Center for Student Activities, Leadership and Service (CSALS). CSALS provides comprehensive programs, activities, and services that enhance the student experience, support student organizations, encourage effective citizenship, develop student leaders, and create community.

NYU Freeseums

Enjoy Freeseums with your NYUCard! Through NYU's Museum Gateway, students get free admission to some of New York City's best cultural institutions. This is your chance to experience the MoMA, the Whitney, and more while you're visiting New York! And it's free!
