All departments provide their students with an NYC MetroCard. The amount of rides varies based on department and studio. As a reminder, please make sure not to lose it! It is not replaceable.
If your coursework requires you to travel, your department will have purchased a MetroCard for those specific activities/events. If you want to travel during your downtime, you will need to purchase your own MetroCard. For more information about traveling within NYC, read the Getting Around post.
