How to obtain an NU Alumni ID card

An NU Alumni Husky ID card serves as your library card, providing you access to the university’s vast collection of books and periodicals as well as online research databases, even from the comfort of your own home. Alumni ID cards are available free of charge from the Registrar's Office in 4 Speare Hall Commons. Check hours and locations before planning your visit.
