Your ID Number

All admitted University of Nebraska–Lincoln students are assigned an NU ID number, used for library services.

Although your ID number is enough to use the library, if you find yourself needing an ID card, you have 2 options:

Live In The Area: Go to the NCard office in the lower level of the Nebraska Union on the UNL campus. You may schedule an appointment for after hours with the NCard office by calling 402.472.7331.

Live Out Of The Area: Fill out and return the distance student NCard application.

If you lose your NUID number, contact the Office of Online & Distance Education at 402.472.5515.

Career Services

If you’re enrolled as a degree seeking student in a UNL program you’ll have access to the same career services as on-campus students. Don’t live in the immediate area? We’ll come to you by providing phone or Skype consultations.

After you graduate, the Nebraska Alumni Association will continue to help with resources and events for job seekers.
