LU access card

Students at Lund University receive a personal access card, known as the LU card. The LU card serves as an ID card within Lund University and you also use it to access the buildings relevant to your studies and borrow books at all university libraries. The card is free and getting one is quick and easy.

Other student cards

Please note that the LU card is not a student discount card.

Studentlund and Studentkortet (the student discount card)

When you join Studentlund, you get ’Studentkortet’ that functions both as an ID-card/membership card (when you attend student events at the student unions and nations) and as a student discount card. The card (+ your regular ID card) gives you access to discounts at certain cafés, restaurants and on travels as well as services and products in shops and online.
