Pick up the card
When you have received a message to your student email address, you are welcome to pick up your card at your chosen Servicecenter. You must show a valid ID card or passport when collecting your card. For security reasons, you can only pick up your own GU card. You can collect your card at any time during the semester.

Access and functions on the card
The GU card shows that you are a student at the University of Gothenburg and have access to the university premises, functions, and services. Your GU card is personal and must not be loaned out. Please note that the GU card does not provide student discounts or works as an identification card in the examination hall. At an examination, you need to bring a valid ID such as a passport or driving licence.
The GU card serves as your access card and gives you access to the premises at the faculty where you are studying. The access function on the card is connected to your course registration in Ladok.
Show your GU card to the card reader to access locked areas. In some cases, you also need to enter the PIN code you chose when you ordered the card. Some faculties have facilities that requires extra access, such as laboratory rooms. Contact your department for more information.
