LIU Card - Your Key To LIU Post

Every student at LIU is issued a Long Island University mobile ID card. The LIU ID serves many functions at both the LIU Post and LIU Brooklyn campuses. It can be used in the Library, Computer labs and the Gym. Dining purchases are also available at both campuses tax-free for students. You can add money to your mobile ID for food purchases through E-Accounts using your Blackboard account on line. Undergraduate and Graduate commuter students that are registered for 9 credits have a minimum meal plan of $75 dining dollars to be used at any on Campus dinning location.

In addition, your mobile ID serves as your library card. To use any of the library facilities, including the book stacks and computer labs, you will need to present your mobile ID; you will also need it to take out books from the library.

If you live on Campus, your mobile ID serves as the key to the main entry of your residence hall. If you are visiting a resident student, you will need your mobile ID to be granted access from the front desk. The LIU ID serves as your official identification as a student of Long Island University. You are required to show it whenever asked by any member of the LIU Campus community.

If you have a LIU Card, it is 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 of a confiscated card costs $25, and after the second confiscation, it will not be returned.

To obtain your LIU mobile ID, use the link LIU mobileID below. 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. You can also contact Public Safety at extension 2222, to have the card cancelled. (If you do not cancel the LIU Card, it could be used by someone else to get into your building, buy food, or take books out of the library). Non-residents can also call Public Safety at extension 2222. There is a $25 fee for a replacement card; you have the option to pay at Enrollment Services or have Public Safety bill your account for a replacement card. If you decide to pay at Enrollment Service, bring your receipt to Public Safety to receive a replacement card.
