Long Island University launches MyLIU mobile card on iPhone, Apple Watch, Android phones

Long Island University has launched its MyLIU Mobile Card that will allow students, faculty and staff to get around campus with just a tap of their iPhone, Apple Watch or Android phone at campus readers. Long Island University partnered with Transact, a leading campus credential solution provider offering NFC-enabled digital IDs, to support the implementation.

“Long Island University is a leader in technological innovation, and we are proud to offer our community members every new tool to create a seamless campus experience,” says Kimberly R. Cline, Long Island University President. “MyLIU Mobile Card is an exciting opportunity to further enhance our strong campus safety protocols and our commitment to protecting the environment while continuing to prepare our students for a digital future.”

Members of the LIU campus community can now add their MyLIU Mobile Card to Apple Wallet or Google Pay and use their iPhone, Apple Watch, or Android phone to complete any action that would have previously required a physical ID card. Users simply place their device near a reader to enter dorms, libraries, fitness centers and other buildings, buy lunch, make purchases at campus stores and more.

The move from physical cards to a contactless, MyLIU Mobile Card allows for transactions that are safe and convenient, and helps students, faculty and staff to avoid touching the readers or handing their ID cards to someone else. Long Island University can also issue school IDs remotely without the need to see students in-person or print and mail physical cards, creating a safer, more cost-effective and more environmentally friendly process.

MyLIU Mobile Card on iPhone, Apple Watch, or Android phones is also protected by two factor authentication to ensure only the student can access their own account, even if someone else knows their password.

Students can also suspend their campus ID if needed through the Transact eAccounts app on any device or Transact’s website.

Launching this new mobile solution complements the University’s launch in 2015 of Browse, an Apple-authorized campus store that serves as an all-purpose tech center. Browse showcases a range of high-end technology devices to enhance the student learning experience.

Browse offers students experiential learning opportunities in retail, customer service, business management, entrepreneurship, small business operations, supply chain management, and technology support. Browse store associates also work alongside Apple certified technologists.
