  • The student ID app works as a student ID at, among others, the student welfare organisations and public transport companies (e.g. NSB), and will be valid in the same way as the study card and paper receipt. However, you will still need a study card to e.g. access buildings and borrow books.

    The student ID is not valid unless the semester fee has been paid, and you have registered for the semesterin the Student web. If your photo is not displayed in the app, other valid identification must be presented with the app. Students studying at multiple institutions must select the institution where they have paid the semester fee when they log in to the student ID app.

    How to log in to the student ID app for the first time?

    • Open the app (requires internet access).
    • Choose which educational institution you belong to.
    • Log in with the usual username and password given by your educational institution.
    • Read the declaration of consent and accept (the app can only be used if you give your consent).
    • Read the terms and agree (the app can only be used if you accept the terms).
    • The app shows the photo that was taken to the student card. If the app does not display photo, other valid photo ID must be displayed upon inspection for the app to be golden as a student ID.
    • If you have paid the semester fee and registered for the semester, this will show in a yellow box at the bottom of the page. The receipt itself is stored in the app, so after logging in and registering the paid semester fee in the app, it can be used without internet access.

    Note: You must have both an app (or a semester card) and a student ID

    Students who do not have a smartphone

    If you do not have a smartphone and therefore do not have the opportunity to use the student ID app, you can order a semester receipt on paper. You log in to Studentweb, and  from the menu in the upper left corner, select Orders and then Semester receipt. Remember to check that the semester address in StudentWeb is updated first.
