How do I obtain an NYU Alumni Card?
All alumni are eligible for an Alumni Card that gives you discounts on entertainment, dining, travel, transportation, shopping, financial services, insurance, and more. If you need a new or replacement physical card, you can request one. Replacement cards are mailed quarterly.
Does my NYU Alumni Card give me access to the NYU buildings?
Unfortunately, the Alumni Card is not a University ID and may not be used to access University buildings. Because our Washington Square campus is in and of the city, space is at a premium and is reserved for use by current students. Details of campus access (which may require valid photo ID)—including Bobst Library and the athletic centers, access to the Kimmel Center and Campus Transportation, and access to the Wasserman Center for Career Development—are available on their respective websites.
What is the minimum donation to receive an Alumni Card?
All alumni are entitled to an NYU Alumni Card, regardless of their status as a donor. There is no initial or annual fee to receive the card and it does not expire.
Who is eligible for NYU Alumni benefits?
Any person who has earned at least 13 credits in a matriculated (degree seeking) program at the University is considered part of the NYU alumni community and eligible to access certain benefits offered, including invitations to most alumni events and access to the Alumni PerksConnect App. Unfortunately, access to NYU Global Home is limited to those who have graduated from a matriculated program.
What is the alumni discount at the Computer Store or Bookstore?
NYU alumni enjoy discounts on full-priced apparel and gifts at our Campus Bookstore or online shop. If you would like to shop in-store, you must present your Alumni ID in order to receive the alumni discount. Alternatively, if you’d like to shop online, you may email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a discount code.
Sale items are not eligible for additional discounts and other restrictions may apply.
Additionally, Alumni also receive an educational discount or pricing on Dell and Lenovo laptops, Apple computers, iPads, AppleCare Warranties, and in-store services at the Campus Computer Store. Prices shown on the website and in-store are reflective of the discount. Items purchased at the Campus Computer Store or online at the educational rate are not eligible for additional discounts.
What's a NetID? An N Number? Do I have those?
All alumni have an NYU NetID and an N Number (or university ID).
Your NetID is a combination of your initials and a few random numbers, e.g., abc123. Your NetID is your username for all NYU online services, including your NYUHome account, ALBERT, NYU wi-fi, as well as is the prefix for your NYU email address (example: email@example.com).
Your NetID is different from your N Number (sometimes called the university ID), which is also printed on your NYUCard, but is a longer string of numbers and starts with an "N."

How do I learn about volunteer opportunities with the NYUAA?
I’ve submitted my volunteer interest form. When should I expect to hear from you?
That depends! Many of our opportunities differ in required hours and length of service. You will be able to indicate your anticipated time commitment and ability on the Volunteer Interest Form. The Office of Alumni Relations will use this information when placing volunteers within our various programs and initiatives.
I’m not sure how I want to get involved; who can I contact in order to learn more about the available opportunities?
If you are interested in scheduling a phone call or in-person meeting with a member of our team, please call (212) 998-6957 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
How can I promote a job opportunity to NYU alumni?
