Your ID Card has many purposes on campus: it serves as your identification card that you will use to gain access to University buildings, your Dining Club card (caf card), your library card and your ID to get onto the shuttles. You must show your ID card, with a current semester sticker (which identifies you as being currently enrolled in the University and is handed out at the start of every semester by security in the college buildings), as you enter every YU building. On the back of your ID are numbers for Security Stations:
Beren Campus: 212.340.7460
Wilf Campus: 212.960.5200
The cafs, or cafeterias, are located in the lower level of each of the college buildings. Kushner Dining Hall is located in Stanton Hall and Le Bistro is located in the 215 Lexington Avenue building.
Your YU ID card also serves as your caf card. In the cafs and the caf stores (stores on campus where food and other items can be purchased), your ID card serves as a declining balance food card. At the start of each semester, money is added to your Dining Club account, which you may then use to purchase food and other items in the cafs or caf stores. Each time you make a purchase, the register’s customer screen shows how much is left on your card.
There are two Caf Stores located on the Beren Campus:
