You need an LTU card for entry through doors and for copying and printing.
You must be a registered student to get a card.
Get a card
As a program student, you will receive your LTU card during the introduction day.
This is how it works:
- Bring a valid photo ID (ID card, driving license, passport).
- You will be photographed.
- You get the card in your hand.
- Update the card every semester in an update machine when you have done your course registration.
- Activate the card and choose a four-digit PIN code on My LTU. Click on your name at top right, select My details and the LTU card. Follow the instructions.
If you have not received a card or are studying independent courses, you should bring a valid ID and visit the Service Point at your place of study.
Activate the card or change the PIN code
You activate your card or change your PIN code by logging in to My LTU. Click on your name at top right, select My details and the LTU card. Follow the instructions.
Update your card
To extend the validity of the card, you must update your LTU card every semester after you have registered for courses. You do this at an update station located at the Service Point.
If you need to extend access to certain premises, contact Service Point.
Functions of the card
Access card. On all university campuses, the LTU card is used for passage through exterior doors, in the evenings and weekends, and for passage through certain interior doors. A personal numerical code is required. You can also use the card to identify yourself as a student for security guards.
Printing and copying
LTU card for distance students
As a distance student, you do not have to get an LTU card. If you visit a place of study, it may be good to get an LTU card during the first day if you want to be able to use the print service (costs apply) or enter through any doors after 16:30.
Mecenat card for distance students
When you have paid the membership fee to the union, Mecenat will be informed of this. They will then send you a letter with login details to the Mecenat app. Depending on the method of payment, this will take a few days. If you want a physical Mecenat card, you need to contact your student union office.
