- Semester Card and student ID-card
You will need a semester card and a student ID-card. The student ID-card functions as an access card to the buildings on campus and as a library card.
Your student ID-card is only valid as a student ID outside of OsloMet if you also have your semester card and you need both cards to buy and use travel tickets with a student discount. (e.g. at Ruter or NSB).
Get your student ID-card at the Card Centre at the beginning of the semester. Please bring ID when collecting your student card. More information about when to collect your ID-card will be given at the start of the semester or in your lecture schedule.
