Every student at the Brooklyn Campus is issued a Long Island University mobile ID. The LIU ID serves many functions. It is used for purchasing food in the dining areas. Any food purchased with the LIU ID is tax-free for students. In addition, your LIU ID serves as your library card. To use any of the library facilities, including the bookstacks and computer labs, you will need to present your LIU ID.
If you live on Campus, your LIU Card also serves as the key to the main entry of your residence hall. If you are visiting a resident student, you will need your card to be granted access from the front desk. Most of all, your LIU ID serves as an official identification as a student of the Brooklyn Campus. You are required to show it whenever asked by any member of the Brooklyn Campus Public Safety Department.
LIU Cards are not exchangeable! This means that your friends and relatives cannot use the card to make purchases, take out books, or get into buildings. If someone else uses your card and is caught, the card will be confiscated immediately. Be careful – replacement ID card costs $25.
To obtain your LIU Card, go to Office Services located on the 4th floor of the Metcalfe Building, room 413. If you lose your LIU Card, you must act immediately!
If you lose your LIU Card, you can deactivate a lost card and you have the ability to reactivate the same card if it is found before you replace it, through your Blackboard e-account.
