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
  • Electronic identification for internal use at LiU
  • Membership card at Campushallen, Campus Valla
