Student Card for part-time students

Student Card (AAU Card)

The student card (AAU card), which shows your student number, functions among other things as

  • an ID card for exams
  • an entrance card to Aalborg University's buildings in Aalborg, Esbjerg and Copenhagen
  • a library card to Aalborg University Library.

Furthermore you can shop with a discount at Aalborg University's campus bookshop FactumBooks as well as in other certain shops if you present your student card.

You must order your student card through UniStart. It is important that you order your student card before commencement as you will need it for your exams. The card will be sent to you by regular mail. After you have received your student card, you must activate it before you can use it as an access and library card.
