Getting your NYU student ID, known around campus as your NYUCard, is now easier than ever.
First-time card holders: visit photoid.nyu.edu to submit a photo online and, once approved by the NYUCard Center team, have your NYUCard created. Visiting students, please submit a photo ASAP so it can be processed and sent to your study away site ahead of your arrival. The final deadline to submit this is Friday, July 29.
Note: If you receive an automated message after submission instructing you to pick your card up at the ID Center, please disregard. Your ID will be sent directly to NYU Prague.
Current and returning students: Please remember to bring your NYU ID card with you to your study away site! Apply for and pick up a replacement card if you need one by visiting the NYUCard Center or respective campus location, depending on your school. For details, please click here.
The NYU Bursar will send bills via email on July 19. Please keep an eye on your NYU email account for your NYU Prague bill. You can also log directly into eSuite to view your billing statements. These will be due in full by August 9.
Visiting students, if financial aid money from your school is going to transfer to NYU and/or your school pays on your behalf, it is okay if these anticipated payments arrive after the bill becomes due. Only the portion of the bill that you are personally responsible for paying directly to NYU must arrive by the due date.
Additionally, if you anticipate receiving any portion of your bill in the form of a refund, we recommend setting up direct deposit with NYU. Instructions on how to do so can be found on the Bursar’s website here.
Note: you can make your parents an “authorized user” of your e-bill account, if payments are typically made by them. For instructions on how to set this up, please see here. Questions about the e-billing process? View the Contact Us page on the Bursar’s website to reach out.
*Tisch Professional Track Students: Your costs may vary slightly, so make sure to refer to the Tisch Special Programs website!

NYU Prague is proud of our excellent music program in which students study with some of Europe’s finest musicians. At the end of every semester we organize student concerts at some of Prague’s leading venues.

To help you prepare for your semester at NYU Prague, please take a few moments to review the Fire Safety Guide.
The guide will remind you of important lessons for remaining safe should there be a fire and also introduce specific policies of your new home.
All students should be making significant progress in applying for their visa at this point. The majority of students should now have applied, or have plans to within the next week or so.
If you are struggling to apply for your visa, or are encountering any difficulties, please contact Aaron Reynolds at OGS immediately (firstname.lastname@example.org; 212-998-4128).
Throughout the past few weeks you have received information and access to the Study Away Confirmation Portal. This is a final reminder that your housing application, required forms, and housing reservation payment) are due June 15. Please ensure to meet this deadline so local staff can begin making assignments and preparing for your arrival. You will receive your housing name and address about 1-2 weeks ahead of arrival. Information about roommates will be provided when you arrive.
As discussed in the pre-departure orientation, when filling out the housing application, please remember to have an open mind and flexible outlook. Given the number of students attending, we want to honor requests where possible, but know that this is dependent on your peers’ requests as well as availability. Please feel free to be in touch with me if you have particular concerns – NYU Prague staff and I want to assist as best as possible.
Lastly, please note that the portal also has a section for you to input your travel details. These are due by August 1 (only the housing portion closes June 15 – you can log back in to submit travel details if you don’t have them yet). This is critical so site staff are aware of when you intend to arrive and can keep an eye on any delays that may occur! The earlier you can submit these the better so staff can get a sense of common arrival times.
In the final edition of Prague Cast, students explore dreams…from Freud’s hometown to giant snakes and selling Czechs washing powder.
