Do you live or study in New York City and have a passion for animals? Well, you literally have to head over to Bronx Zoo. Whether itโ€™s your first trip or your fiftieth, this incredible place is a dream come true for anyone who loves animals. A huge 265-acre zoo, it has bison, lemur, gorillas, lions, bears, birds of prey, and many more. Among other activities, you can get up close and personal with your favorite animals, watch live feedings, enjoy nature treks and try the treetop adventure course.

The cherry on top? Bronx Zoo offers complimentary Limited Admission tickets to NYC undergrads! The โ€œlimited admissionโ€ part means you donโ€™t have access to premium rides and exhibits (you can pay for these separately if you wish), but itโ€™s still a generous discount thatโ€™s well worth redeeming.

How To Get The Bronx Zoo College Student Discount

To do so, you purchase tickets here and use the promo code โ€œNYCCOLLEGEโ€ at checkout. In terms of eligibility, you must be able to show a valid college ID from an institution within one of the 5 NYC boroughs. Alternatively, if youโ€™re an NYC resident going to college outside NYC, then youโ€™ll need proof of NYC residency.
