In NYU Precollege, you are considered a college student just like any other NYU college student. And like every college student here, you will need to have an NYU ID card.
What does my NYUCard do?
Your NYUCard is what will identify you as a student at NYU, and what you will use to get around campus. You will need it to gain access to your classes, your residence hall, and all other NYU buildings and facilities such as the library, the gym, the Student Health Center, etc.
What is Campus Cash?
You can also use your ID card to make purchases. By adding Campus Cash to your card, you can make purchases at both NYU and commercial establishments that accept campus cash. Also, many shops, restaurants, cafes, and even dry cleaners will give you a student discount if you simply show them your NYU ID card. So be sure to always carry it with you!
How do I get my NYU ID card?
Submit your ID photo online. Be sure to submit your photo no later than June 25 to ensure the Card Center has enough time to approve your photo and print your card before you arrive. Then on move-in day, you can pick up your NYU ID card at 7 Washington Place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. You will need to show a photo ID in order to pick up your NYUCard.
The preferred method is to simply submit a photo online and, once approved by the NYUCard Center, you can pick up your card in person. The NYUCard Center is at 7 Washington Place. You must bring a valid photo ID with you to get your card. Photos submitted and approved by 3:00 p.m. can be picked up the following business day. More information about submitting your NYUCard photo and information is available online.
You may also get your NYUCard in person at the NYU Card Center at 7 Washington Place after you are registered in courses and before the program begins. The Card Center is open Monday-Friday 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
How do I add Campus Cash to my NYU ID card?
Visit the NYU Campus Cash website for information on how to add campus cash to your card, and to learn more about the benefits of doing so!
Do I get to keep my ID Card when Precollege is over?
Unfortunately, no; all students will have to turn in their NYU ID Card at the end of their term of study (it will be deactivated at that time). If a student doesn’t return their ID card and returns for ANY future term, they must pay a $25 replacement fee.
As always, feel free to contact us with any questions!
