ID Cards for Students, ALUMNI, and Employees

University identification cards (ID cards) are required and are issued to all faculty, staff, and students. ID cards are necessary to access all residence halls or academic and administrative buildings, use of the library, entry to sports events, and all University facilities. ID cards expire upon leaving the employment of the University or upon a student’s graduation or leaving the University. Alumni ID cards are issued upon request after confirmation of alumni status. For information on hours of operation please visit website

For your convenience, you are now able to obtain an electronic version of the Adelphi identification card on your smartphone using the AU2Go mobile app. However, the physical I.D. card distributed by Public Safety remains the only official identification for access control to buildings, parking facilities, venues and when requested by an official of the University. Alumni I.D. cards are issued upon request after confirmation of Alumni status.
