Apply for your Student Card
When you are admitted to the University of Copenhagen you can apply for a student ID-card. You must send an electronic lifelike picture of yourself to the ID Card Department at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible after your admission. They prefer the file to be jpg format size 200 x 200 pixels named with your student id number. You can pick up your student ID-card at the International Office upon your arrival or at the Orientation Meeting which is held in the first weeks of August and September (autumn semester) and January and February (spring semester).
While Waiting for your Student Card
While you are waiting for your id card, you can follow the process on KUnet. Go to self service - ID-kort - Korthistorik
|xx.xx.xxxx||Følgebrev oprett. ID-kort til DIK-stud udskrevet||(card will be sent to The International Office within a few days)|
|xx.xx.xxxx||Kort produceret||(card produced)|
|xx.xx.xxxx||Billede indlæst||(picture registered)|
Use of the Card
The card identifies you as a student in the University and you must remember to bring it when you sign up for and sit your exams. You also use the card as a key to access University facilities outside regular opening hours, to benefit from student discounts in bookshops, museums, theatres etc., and as a library card.
If you Lose your Card
You can block your Student ID card at KUnet. The function in KUnet is still in Danish. In order to block your card, log on to KUnet, choose Student self-service --> ID kort --> spær ID kort --> tick the box and click spær valgte. A new Student ID card will automatically be sent to you within a few working days.
When you are admitted to the University of Copenhagen, you will be assigned an e-mail account with the University. You will receive information about this in your letter of admission. We will use this e-mail address to contact you both prior to and during your stay in Copenhagen, so please make sure to check your University of Copenhagen account regularly.
Access your Account
You access the e-mail account by logging on to KUnet using your student ID number and your pin code assigned to you by the University of Copenhagen.
If you Forget your Pin Code
If you have forgotten pin code, you should send an e-mail to the International Office at email@example.com. We will re-send you your pin code to your private e-mail account as soon as possible.
