About NYUCard

The NYUCard is a must for all NYU Faculty, Administration and Staff members. The NYUCard should be carried at all times while on campus. The card, which identifies you as Faculty, Administration or Staff, entitles you to various privileges and potential uses on campus. Your NYUCard entitles you to a discount in the NYU Bookstore and allows you to access selected NYU buildings, campus transportation and computer centers located throughout campus.

Students must have an NYUCard in order to request services at the Student Services Center and to gain entry to the residence halls, libraries, Coles, Palladium Sports Centers, and other University buildings. 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 should terminate your stay at NYU, please return your card to the NYUCard Center. In Washington Square, The NYUCard Center is located inside the Command Center on the ground floor of 7 Washington Place (at the corner of Mercer Street). In Brooklyn, the NYUCard Center is located inside of 2 MetroTech Center on the ground floor.

Business hours for the Card Center located on the Washington Square campus are 8:00am to 5:00pm, Monday through Friday. During business hours, the Card 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 an NYUCard, please bring with you government issued identification with a current photo, and your N number or NetID. Business hours for the Card Center located at the Tandon School of Engineering are 9:00am to 5:00pm, Monday through Friday.

After the Card Center closes at 5:00pm, the Command Center’s security staff will continue to assist you by producing new ID cards and generating replacement ID cards, making it possible to obtain a new or replacement NYUCard 24-hours/day, 7 days/week.

Students who need to replace a lost NYUCard will have the $25 replacement fee billed directly to their Bursar Accounts. Non-students may also replace an NYUCard: During business hours, the lost card fee may be paid via cash or Campus Cash; after business hours, only cash payments will be accepted. It is important to not punch a hole in your NYUCard. Your 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, and will result in a replacement charge of $25.
