To use the digital student card, you will need the Leiden University app.

When will my student card be available?

New students

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.

Re-registering students

The Leiden University app only shows your student card for the current academic year. If you re-register for the next academic year, your new student card will become visible in the app on 1 September.

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.
