I.D. Cards
Institute identification cards (ID cards) are issued to Members and Visitors by Public Safety. Cards may be issued for family members by emailing a photo, preferably with a light colored background, to idcards@ias.edu.

Members and Visitors who are at IAS for more than 30 days, may use their card to charge meals in the Dining Hall and to use our laundry facility. In both cases, charges will be posted to their account. Those that are here for less than 30 days must pay at the dining services cashier, and have credit put on ther ID card at Fuld Hall Reception, to use the laundry facility. Members and Visitors are responsible for the charges generated on their respective family cards.

Family ID cards are automatically programmed for access to the TV lounge and laundry room in the Activities Building, and to the tennis courts. Additional access to the fitness center can be obtained by filling out a waiver found at this link https://www.ias.edu/fitness-center-waiver . Requests for access to academic areas should be addressed to your School Administrative Officer.

Laundry Cards
For members and visitors who are staying at IAS for more than 30 days: These cardholders will have the option of adding cash to their existing IAS ID card, or charging their laundry costs to their account much like their dining hall charges. If you choose to charge the laundry costs to your account, they will be listed on your normal IAS statement of charges as "Laundry Charges".

For members and visitors who are staying at IAS for less than 30 days: These cardholders can add cash to their non-photo IAS visitor ID card, or to the Temporary Access Card they receive when they check-in at IAS upon arrival.

For both scenarios above, cash can be added to a card at the Fuld Hall Reception desk. A cardholder may also get a cash refund from the Fuld Hall Receptionist for any cash balance that exists on the card before the visitor leaves IAS. The Fuld Hall Reception is available to assist with adding or refund cash between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday (except during IAS holiday closings).

The cost to use a washer is $1.50 per load. The cost to use a dryer is also $1.50 per load.

Postage Stamps
Postage stamps may be purchased at the Reception desk in Fuld Hall between 9:00 am and 1:00 pm or 2:00pm and 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday (except during IAS holiday closings). Purchases will be charged directly to your Institute ID card. Please bring the card with you to the Reception Desk at the time of purchase.
