NYU revamps card program

Category: ID Cards in the News

New York University is updating their old swipe machines to more secure electronic card readers. This move, along with new student ID cards, is helping the university to provide increased safety and convenience to students and staff.

With the old system, students were required to swipe the magnetic stripe on their ID cards to enter buildings. The new security program started this summer when the university announced they would issue new smart cards to students. Now students can use their new contactless smart cards to gain access with a simple wave of the card. The new card readers have been installed in several buildings across campus, and will soon be installed in all buildings. Even the international campus buildings, including those in Abu Dhabi and Florence, have been updated with the new technology.

Secure ID cards and card readers are an essential part of keeping students safe on campus. Shop our selection of access control cards to start your program today.
