Student or registration card
Your student or registration card is your proof of registration as a student of Leiden University.
Digital student card
Since 1 January 2022, students no longer receive a physical student card and instead make use of a digital student card. To use the digital student card you will need the Leiden University app. The card will appear in the app within three days of the finalisation of your student registration.

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 an EU ID card.
Not visible in the app?
You will receive confirmation via uSis once your registration has been finalised. If your card isn't visible in the app after three days, contact the ISSC helpdesk.
Always up to date
The digital student card is connected in realtime to the student administration system. As the card always shows today's date, it's easy to check whether it is currently valid.
