FIT Campus Card
FIT is fully committed to maintaining a safe and secure campus environment for the college. A vital part of that commitment is for all persons to show a verified form of identification to be permitted access to college facilities and services.
Students and Employees
The FIT Campus Card is the official campus multi-use card. You must present a validated card to FIT Public Safety personnel in order to enter campus facilities and events, as well as some academic and administrative offices, FIT residence halls, after-hours labs and classrooms, and other restricted areas. Additionally, you can use your card as a declining balance card to purchase campus services, such as Print/FX and dining services.
Once an FIT ID number is issued for identification, the number will be electronically uploaded into the FIT Campus Card system along with other associated demographic information.
- Students must provide proof of registration before a photo will be taken and a card issued either at orientation or by going to the FIT photo ID office, 236 West 27th Street.
- Employees and all others needing an FIT Campus Card should go directly to the FIT photo ID office, 236 West 27th Street.
A lost, stolen, or damaged FIT Campus Card should be reported immediately in person at the Public Safety office. Replacement cards cost $30.
FIT Campus Card Management
Students and employees may go online to FIT eAccounts or to MyFIT to add money to their FIT Campus Card accounts, check activity and balances, report a lost or stolen Campus Card, or place a hold on account activity.
