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

How to get LiU-ID and LiU-card

  1. Register for your courses.
  2. From August 1 new student can upload a portrait image in Min IT by following the instructions. In order to get a LiU-card, you must first upload a portrait image under "My profile" in Min IT. (Please note that step 2 applies from 1 August and only for new students at LiU.)
  3. Collect your LiU-ID and LiU-card at an Info Centre. 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.
  4. Link your LiU-card to the print function in order to be able to use the printers at LiU. 

Change PIN

If you have uploaded a portrait image under "My profile" in Min IT, you can change the PIN code on your LiU-card. You can change the PIN by either visiting Info Centre or by sending an email with the new PIN to infocenter@liu.se from your student e-mail address.

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