Student Card

How to order your Student Card

As a new student you can order your Student Card here

To order a Student Card, you will need a temporary login. Once you accept your study place, you will receive a login within a week. If you have a Danish 'NemID', you will be able to order your Student Card 1-2 weekdays after accepting the study place.

Please note your examination number

Once you have ordered your Student Card, your examination number will appear. You will need this number to gain access to SDU's IT facilities.

To gain acces to SDU's IT facilities you will have to reset your password using your examination number and your CPR-number.

We recommend that you note your examination number. It will also appear on the receipt which you receive once you have ordered your Student Card.

If you face any problems

If you haven't received a login, if you lack your receipt, or if you face any other problems ordering your Student Card or gaining access to our IT facilities, please call our helpdesk on +45 6550 2990 - we will help you along.

For handing out a new student card (outside the lockdown period):
