The Campus Card
The campus card is a multi-function card including a photo of the cardholder. If you study or work at the university, you must have a campus card. The card gives you access to Campus Gotland when it is closed (opening hours) as well as to enter any of the computer rooms or to use our printers.
Distance education courses or completed studies?
Students who participate in distance learning courses and spend only a few days on the University premises, or that have completed their studies, do not need a campus card. If you belong to one of these categories you can ignore the campus card request e-mails.
