How to obtain and use your student card.

What can I use my student card for?

Always bring your student card. It is used

  • as an electronic key to the buildings and rooms,
  • as a library ID-card,
  • to collect print-outs,
  • as a student ID-card, when presented together with the Student ID App or semester card.

Lost or damaged card?

Student ID

The student card is valid as a full student ID (necessary for buying reduced fares or tickets) only in tandem with a valid Student ID App or semester card.

Access to buildings and rooms

PIN code

The same four numbers you once used for activating the user account are also used on the card readers during evenings and week-ends.

  1. Place the card over the keypad. (If a click from the can be heard, or the indicator is green, the lock is already open)
  2. Slowly enter the code (without gloves).
  3. The indicator blinks green when access is permitted. In case of malfunction please call our security services on (+47) 40 911 000 (or write to sikkerhet@hioa.no )
