LiU-ID och LiU-card

As a student at Linköping University you get access to a user-id called LiU-ID and a personal access card called the LIU-card.

The LiU-ID is a central user identity consisting of a username and password, that you use to log in to all the university's IT services.

The LiU-card is a plastic card with the following functions:

  • Access card on Campus
  • Library card
  • Copy/print card
  • Bus card on the Campus bus
  • Student ID
  • Identification for exams
  • Student discount card and Mecenat card
  • Membership card at Campushallen, Campus Valla

Acquire your LiU-ID and LiU-card

Collect your LiU-ID and LiU-card at a student service desk/LiU card station on Campus:

  1. Register for a course at Linköping University. See www.liu.se/antagen.
  2. Collect your LiU-ID and LiU-card at a Student service desk/LiU-card station. Bring identification (passport, national ID card or driving license if you are from within the EU, only passport otherwise).
  3. Activate LiU-ID och LiU-card using the activation key you receive when you sign the agreement. Activation is necessary in order to use both LiU-ID and LiU-card.
  4. (Optional) Link your LiU-card to the PayEx print function in order to be able to use the printers at LiU. 

Update your LiU-card

The LiU-card must be updated each semester. This sets the card as active for the current semester, and prints a new expiry date on it. To update the card you must have registered for your courses at least the day before. Updating is made in self-service machines found at a LiU-card station or other places around Campus.

Block your LiU-card

If you lose your LiU-card you must block it immediately by:

  • Visiting a student service desk/LiU-card station, or
  • Sending an e-mail from your student e-mail account to liukortet@liu.se. When contacting us by e-mail, always state your civic registration number (P-number). Blocking by e-mail generally takes about two working days.

After blocking, a new LiU-card can be obtained for free from a student service desk/LiU-card station.
