Important NYU Offices and Policies

On this page:

ID Card

The NYU identification card is the official form of identification for both the NYU and ISAW community.  Your card provides information on your official NetID (required for access to most NYU and ISAW systems, including email and wireless internet) and your NYU Identification Number, which is used in lieu of your social security number.  Many NYU buildings, including Bobst library, require you to show or swipe your ID card in order to gain access to the building and provide other services.  Please provide a scan of both sides of your ID card to the Administrative Coordinator for our records.
