If you are student registered in a programme, you will receive your LTU card during the first day of orientation.
This is how it works:
If you have not received a card or are only taking individual courses, you should bring your valid ID and visit Service Point/the Student Reception Desk at your campus.
To activate your card or change the pin code you log into My LTU (see upper right corner of this page). Click on your name in the top right corner, choose My account > LTU Card and follow the instructions.
To extend the validity of your card, you need to update your LTU card every term after registering for a course. There are updating machines located at Student Reception Desk/Service Point.
Are you in need of expanding the availability of your card, please contact Student reception desk/Service Point.
Student Union ID - When you have paid your Student Union fee, you can update your card and the Student Union logo will be printed on the card. The validity period for a Student Union ID will be printed at the bottom of the card.
Mecenat Card for student discounts - If you are registered in at least one course at LTU, and if you are a member of a student union, you can get the Mecenat logo on your LTU card and thereby use it as a Mecenat card. If you are studying more than 75% you also have the right to get the SJ logo printed on your card for travel discounts.
Access Card - At all campuses the LTU card can be used for gaining access via the entrance doors in the evenings and weekends, and to certain internal doors. A personal four-digit code is required.
As a distance student you do not need to obtain an LTU card. But if you visit one of our campuses, it is a good idea to get one on the first day if you want to print something out or use the entrance doors after 5pm.
After you have paid the Student Union fees Mecenat will send out log in information for the Mecenat app within a couple of days. If you want a Mecenat card you need to contact the office of your Student Union.
