Student Union members can order a student card for the price of 10 euros. The student card, combined with the annual registration sticker, proves their membership and student status. By showing this card you can get travel discounts for trains (VR) and long-distance buses (Matkahuolto), student-friendly priced lunches and many other benefits and discounts. You can also recharge student-friendly priced Juvenes student restaurant meals. The card also works as a library card in the University library where it can be activated.
You can activate admittance on city center campuses when you pick up the card. The card will serve as a key to the micro classes and libraries of the university. When picking up your card from the Hervanta campus, you have to go activate the admittance on an info desk at the campus.
Nowadays, the student card is ordered online after you have enrolled as present at the University and payed the Student Union membership fee. After you have paid the membership fee, please wait a couple of days before you order the card because the transaction takes some time.
You need to have an appropriate photo of yourself to order the card. The format of the photo must be JPG and its size may be 4 megabytes at maximum. You can crop the photo after uploading it. Make sure the photo is a face photo resembling a passport photo: well-lit and clear. If you have ordered the card with a photo that does not meet the criteria, the card will not be given to you and the payment will not be refunded, and you will have to order a new card that meets the criteria.
The card costs 10 euros. It will be paid for when ordering, with a credit card or via an e-payment.
The card order will go directly to the card manufacturer. The estimated manufacturing time is 1-2 weeks.

The student card can be collected from TREY service points in central or Hervanta campus depending on where you study.

If you have chosen for the card to be delivered to the Pori unit, it can be collected from the Pointer ry’s office.
When collecting your card, you must have photo identification (passport, driver’s license or an official ID card). If the card is not collected within 2 years, the card will become the Student Union’s property and it will be destroyed.
If you are transferring from the Open University, you will have a new student number (not a6xxxxxxx).
Students who have paid the annual membership fee and enrolled as present, can get an annual registration sticker that makes the student card valid It takes a few days for your payment to register to the system, after which the sticker can be collected. If you have ordered a new card, the registration sticker will be attached to the card upon collection.
If you lose your student card
If you lose your student card that also functions as a key card, you must notify the University’s IT Helpdesk immediately. If your card is an old card without a chip (i.e. a card that does not function as a key card) you do not need to notify the IT Helpdesk.
The mobile student card is a service provided by Pivo. You can get the student card directly to your phone! It is a handy addition to your traditional plastic card. You can use the mobile student card even if you have forgotten or lost your plastic one. The mobile student card works on the Pivo-app in Android and iOS devices.
Postgraduate (Doctoral) students who have joined the Student Union can order the student card for the price of 10 euros, which, combined with the annual registration sticker, verifies their membership status. Unfortunately, the postgraduate student card does not entitle you to travel discounts (VR and Matkahuolto) or Kela’s student meal discounts. However, most of the student benefits listed on our page are available also with the postgraduate student card. The card also works as a library card in the University library where it can be activated.
Postgraduate students have access to TuniSport’s services for the same price as basic degree students. The green student card does not have a microchip and therefore does not act as an access card. A separate access card can be collected at the IT Services Office or from Atalpa’s reception.
