University ID Card image

The University ID Card is your passport to Columbia.  It grants you access to the Libraries and secure campus locations, allows you to purchase services at campus dining locations and the University bookstore, and enables you to take advantage of cultural discount programs in New York City.  Read more about the many University ID Card features.

Our office in 204 Kent Hall serves students, faculty and staff at Morningside and Manhattanville, as well as Barnard College and Union Theological Seminary.

We are open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, excluding University Holidays.

If you have any questions, please write to us at idcard@columbia.edu or call us at 212-854-7225.
