All students must have a NYUCard while at NYU.  It not only identifies you as an NYU student, it grants you access to NYU buildings and services and student discounts around the campus and city.

After you are registered in your January course, you can submit your NYUCard photo online and, when approved by the NYUCard team, you can pick up your new card at the NYUCard Center at 7 Washington Place! Please note: You must bring a valid photo ID with you to the NYUCard Center to get your student ID. The online photo ID submission will reopen in January.

Photos submitted and approved by 3:00 p.m. can be picked up on the following business day.  More details and information about photo submission guidelines are available online.
