How to order a student card?


For the order form you will need your student number. You will find it in the personal settings of your profile in Peppi, in grey colour in the top left corner. You can check the number in Peppi a little before the start of a semester.

The facial image

The picture for your student card should be a close-up of your face, with the face fully visible and easily identifiable. The picture does not have to be an official passport photo, but it needs to be similar to a passport photo.


The delivery

You will get an email when your card is ready. After that, you can collect the card from Student Union Kaakko’s office or you can reply to that email and ask us to send the card to your home address. Sending the card by the mail is on student’s own responsibility.

Note! Postage to home address costs 5€.  If you have not paid the postage yet, you can pay it HERE
