Access to Law School Buildings

The Office of Alumni Relations warmly welcomes alumni to visit campus to attend events, use the Law Library, or simply “look around.” It is important to note that, as with any New York City building, there are standard procedures and requirements for entering Vanderbilt or Furman Halls.


Attending an Event

Alumni attending an event at the Law School should be prepared to show photo identification to the guard at the entrance of each building. Alumni will then be directed to the event location, where they may have to formally register for the event.


Use of the Law Library

Alumni wishing to use the Law Library are required to make an annual contribution to the Annual Fund of $250. Alumni who graduated two years ago may become members for $75. Alumni who graduated up to one year ago are invited to enjoy a complimentary membership for their first year out of law school. A library card will be mailed to the alumnus/a once the contribution is received. This card is required for access to the Library. Please note that a Law Library card is needed for admittance and NYU Bobst Library cards will not be accepted. For more information on making a gift to the Law School in order to receive a Law Library card, please call the Alumni Relations hotline at (212) 998-6410.


Facilities Walk Through

Alumni wishing to take a tour of any Law School building must obtain a temporary visitors pass after presenting photo identification to the guard posted at the entrances of Furman and Vanderbilt Halls. Alumni are welcome to visit common areas of the Law School, excluding classrooms, offices, and the Law Library unless they have a library card.
