Your NYUCard

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

Once you are registered in your Fall courses, you can get your NYUCard. Simply submit a photo online (beginning 12/1) and, once approved by the NYUCard Center, pick it up in person. If submitted and approved by 3:00 PM, you can pick up your card the following business day. The NYUCard Center is located at 7 Washington Place on the corner of Mercer Street. Please note that you must bring a valid photo ID with you to get your card. More information can be found online.

Perhaps most importantly, your NYUCard will grant you access to dining options. Students living on or off-campus can utilize NYU’s 13 dining locations during the semester. Dining halls include traditional buffet-style meals and national brand favorites such as Quiznos, Starbucks, Dunkin’ Donuts, Peet’s Coffee & Tea, and even Chick-Fil-A!

The University offers a variety of meal plans to make the dining experience easier for students. Information about meal plans for students living both on and off campus can be found here. For more information regarding NYU Dining and Meal Plans, check out the NYU Dining Guide.

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
