LiU-ID and 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

How to get 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 your courses.
  2. Collect your LiU-ID and LiU-card at a Student service desk or LiU-card station. Bring an ID document; passport, national ID card or driving license if you are from within the European Union, passport only if you are from outside the EU.
  3. Link your LiU-card to the print function in order to be able to use the printers at LiU. 

Update your LiU-card

The LiU-card must be updated with a new expiry date each semester. You must have registered for your courses at least the day before. Updating is done in self-service machines found at the LiU-card stations and some other places (see the right panel) around Campus.

Change PIN

To change the PIN on your card you must either come by a card station or send an email to liukortet@liu.se from your student e-mail address.

Block your LiU-card

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

  • Visiting a student service desk/LiU-card station, or
  • Sending an e-mail from your student e-mail account to liukortet@liu.se.

After blocking, a new LiU-card can be obtained for free from any LiU-card station.
