New Employees

If you are a new employee, you can find a lot of information about getting started on the New Employee website. You will not be able to access NYU Home until you have your NYU 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.  Many NYU buildings, including Bobst library, require you to show or swipe your ID card in order to gain access to the building. It also is a connection to other services, such as Campus Cash. 

The NYU Card Center is located at 7 Washington Place and has a temporary location during fall Welcome Week at the Kimmel Center.  Further information about NYUCard and its benefits may be found at on the NYU Card website.
