Acquiring an NYUCard

The NYUCard (photo ID) is a multi-purpose photo identification card issued to all NYU residents. This card allows access to the residence halls, dining halls, athletic facilities, and administrative buildings.

For security purposes, all residents are required to have their NYUCard in their possession at all times. Once a resident obtains an NYUCard, he/she must also obtain a summer validation sticker from their residence hall for hall access.

Getting Your NYUCard

The NYUCard is a multipurpose photo identification card used by all residents of NYU Housing. You are required to obtain your NYUCard within 72 hours of your initial arrival on campus.

Your NYUCard will identify you as a member of the NYU community and should be carried at all times.

Detailed information about electronically sending in a photo in advance of your arrival on campus is emailed to residents who have a confirmed Summer Housing assignment. This will allow your NYUCard to be generated before your scheduled check-in.

The NYUCard will allow you access to:

  • Your assigned residence hall
  • Bobst Library (if you are classified as a student and currently enrolled in classes)
  • NYU athletic facilities
  • NYU dining facilities (when applicable)

Submitting Your ID Photo

Non-NYU applicants should submit their photo electronically prior to the beginning of their reservation so their NYUCard is ready for pick up on their check-in day.
