Student ID cards


As a student at DTU, you must have a valid student ID card. You must use the student ID card as proof of identification at exams, when contacting the Study Administration, and when you are on campus. In addition, you must use the student ID card to gain access to DTU's data bars. If you need access to the departments' premises, including laboratories, you must contact the study secretary at the department, as special rules apply regarding access to laboratories, etc.

When you are admitted to DTU, you must make sure to order your student ID card yourself. Here is how:

  1. Upload a picture of yourself to DTUBasen
    DTUBasen is DTU's register of all students and employees at DTU. There MUST be a picture of you in DTUBasen before you can order a student ID card.
  2. Order your student ID card via the "Cardadmin" page
    You log in to the page with the same login information you use for DTU's intranet DTU Inside. The student ID card will be sent to your registered address. If you have a foreign address, you will receive an email in your student email about where you can pick up your student ID card.
  3. Activate your student card on the "Cardadmin" page

Your student ID card is personal, and you may not pass it on to others.

If you lose your student ID card, you must deactivate it and order a new one via the "Cardadmin" page.
If your student card expires, you must order a new one. That does not happen automatically.
