Overview & Getting Started
Against the backdrop of the lingering risks and uncertainty of COVID-19, and with a focus on reducing density on campus for the safe return of NYU students, faculty, and employees, on-campus, in-person benefits and services (including library visits, campus transportation, and the Jeffrey S. Gould Alumni Student Welcome Center) remain unavailable to alumni at this time. During the fall 2021 semester, only affiliates, vendors, and visitors whose in-person presence is essential to the University’s academic mission and core operations will be granted access to NYU buildings.

As part of the NYU alumni community of almost half-a-million, you are eligible for global and local discounts, career services, a lifetime NYU email address, and access to other online resources. The NYU Alumni Card gives you access to these benefits and helps to showcase your #VioletPride, but you don’t have to wait to receive it before getting started.
