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

You can change the PIN on your card by either coming by one of our card stations or by sending an email with the new PIN to liukortet@liu.se from your student e-mail address (only).

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.
