Your NYUCard


All NYU students must get a NYUCard for the summer. Your NYUCard, or student ID, will be your gateway to many things – classrooms, libraries, freeseums, athletic facilities, and great student discounts!

Once you are registered in your summer courses, you can get your NYUCard. First time NYU students can simply submit a photo online and, once approved by the NYUCard Center, pick it up in person. Returning NYU students must visit the NYUCard Center in person to obtain a new card. The NYUCard Center is located at 7 Washington Place on the corner of Mercer Street. They are open Monday – Friday from 8am – 5pm, and Sundays (May 29-July 31) from 9am-4pm. Please note that you must bring a valid photo ID with you to get your card. More information can be found online.

Your NYUCard will grant you access to dining options. Students living on or off-campus can utilize NYU’s available dining locations during the summer. The University offers a variety of meal plans to make the dining experience easier for students. Commuter students interested in signing up for a meal plan are also welcome to do so.

In addition to meal plans, your NYUCard can also serve as a debit card with Campus Cash. Campus Cash is a service that allows you to put money onto your card and use it at participating shops, cafes, and restaurants. (It’s also great for doing laundry!) Rather than worry about carrying and budgeting your cash, save time and safely consolidate your money by enrolling in Campus Cash.

As you can see, your NYUCard is a powerful thing! If you have further questions about obtaining your NYUCard, meals plans, or Campus Cash, email us at
