New LiU Card from August

A new LiU Card will be introduced on 1 August. The card follows the LiU graphic profile but lacks visible personal data, since the information is stored in digital form. It is not necessary to exchange existing LiU cards for new ones.

Three LiU Cards in different colours.One consequence of the efficiency review is that LiU has decided to no longer present visible personal data (photograph, name and personal identity number) on the LiU Card. Thus, the new LiU Card will no longer be used as proof of identity, since the information about the bearer will no longer be visible. The card is, however, still registered as your personal card, and you must confirm this by signing it on the back.

Information about name, personal identity number, photograph and your employment will be stored in digital form. The campus security service will have a portable unit to scan the card and in this way see the information. Invigilators at exams will be able to scan student cards in the same way.

The card will continue to be used as an access card on the campuses, as a borrower’s card at all LiU libraries, to obtain print-outs and copying services, and for in-service travel on the campus bus.

Tre stycken LIU-kort. Ett med baksidan uppåtvänd.Managed by the Info Centre

The new LiU Card will be introduced on 1 August, and can be collected at any one of the three Info Centres, just as today. If you already have a LiU Card, it will continue to function and you will not need to collect a new one, unless your existing card becomes faulty or is lost. It will no longer be necessary to update your card. Authorised access to premises and the information about you will remain active as long as you are a co-worker at LiU.

You must present valid proof of identity when collecting a new LiU Card.

New procedures for photographs (co-workers)

Co-workers will no longer need to have their photograph taken when collecting a new LiU Card. The photograph used on your profile page on liu.se can be linked to the LiU Card, once it has been taken. It can be taken by a communications officer in your department or at one of the drop-in sessions arranged by the Communications and Marketing Division.

Doctoral students

Doctoral students until now have had to have both a student card and a co-worker card. In the future, only one LiU Card will be needed, and a portrait photograph will no longer be required.
