Student or registration card

Your student or registration card is your proof of registration as a student of Leiden University.


Your student card is digital and can be found in the Leiden University app.

Download the Leiden University app

When is it visible in the app?

Your student card will appear in the app within 3 days of the finalisation of your student registration, but not earlier than 2 months before the start of your study programme. 

Once your student registration has been finalised, you will receive notification via uSis. 

Is your card not visible in the app 3 days after the finalisation of your student registration and will your studies start in less than 2 months? If so, contact the ISSC helpdesk.

Not valid ID for exams

You cannot use your digital student card as ID when taking exams. Instead, you must show your LU-Card, accompanied by a valid ID document such as your passport or EU ID card.

Always up to date 

The digital student card is connected to the student administration system in real-time. That means it is easy to check the validity of the card as it always shows current data.
