As of the 2017-2018 academic year, you will receive a digital student card instead of a paper student card. You can find the digital Student Card in the MyUU app.
What is the student card for?
When you make use of university facilities (e.g. attend lectures, take examinations), you use your student card to prove that you are a Utrecht University student. When necessary, you will also need to be able to show valid proof of identity (e.g. passport or ID card). Having the student card in the MyUU app means that you always have your student card with you. You simply show your student card in the app. You can also use your student card for student discounts. If this is not accepted, you can opt for the -more widely recognised- ISIC card for international students.
When will you receive your student card?
Your digital student card will become available when your registration at Utrecht University has been finalized. As of then you can find your card in the MyUU app. It will not be visible before this time, because your main faculty first has to confirm that you have started your studies at UU. At most faculties this is confirmed at the faculty’s introduction programme. Your registration is then finalized as of the second week of classes.
If you want a passport photo on your student card, simply go to Osiris and upload your photograph there.
Download the app from the Apple App Store or the Android Google Play Store. Log in using your Solis-ID and password. You will find the student card in the drop-down menu. Forgotten your password? You can create a new one via the Password Self Service. Your Solis-ID is the same as your student number. If you are a new student, you will receive your Solis-ID and password from July onwards.

Questions or problems?
If you have any questions about the digital student card, you can contact Student Services. If you have any problems, you can check with your main Faculty Student Desk if your registration at Utrecht University has been finalized. If it is, and you still cannot open the app, please contact the IT Service Desk for help. They can also help you if you have any problems logging into Osiris or uploading a passport photo here.
