RESIDENTIAL ID CARDS

Union Theological Seminary  has negotiated with Columbia University to provide photo ID cards for the spouses, partners, and children 12 years of age and older, of Union faculty, students and staff who live in Union Seminary housing.  This Columbia photo ID will not permit access to any services provided by Columbia University.  This photo ID will give residents  “swipe” access to Union Seminary and negate the use of the paper, “temporary/visitor” ID card. Visitors will still need to use the paper ID card. The cost of each Columbia photo ID card is $20.  Residents who lose their Columbia ID will also incur this charge. 

Please apply for the Residential ID card online
