The KAU card is a personal card that functions as a keycard, library card and print card.
The KAU card is a multifunctional card developed for increased campus security, as well as being practical to use. The card is personal and features your name, photograph, and date of birth (YYMMDD). It is not valid as identification. There are four different versions of the card that shows whether you are a student, an employee, from an external organization, or a guest.
Please note: employees order their KAU-cards through the employee intranet.
New temporary routine for delivery and photography for KAU-cards
For students ordering their first KAU-card
- The student orders their card in the KAU-card portal
Log in with your KauID and order your card here
- The student sends an e-mail to email@example.com with a notification that they have ordered a KAU-card. Attach a personal photo that clearly shows your face. Valid formats are JPG, PNG, and BMP.
- The e-mail needs to be sent from the e-mail address registered in the student’s profile in Ladok.
When the KAU-card is ready it will be sent to the student’s registered postal address in Ladok - make sure your profile is updated with your Swedish postal address! If you do not have a registered postal address in Sweden please contact the Welcome Centre.
Changing your code and blocking your card
For students who have previously held a KAU-card but need a new one
The student logs into the KAU-card portal and blocks the old card. After that a new card can be ordered in the same portal. When ordering a replacement card you do not need to send in a new photo. The card will be sent to the student’s registered postal address in Ladok together with payment information – a replacement card costs 100 SEK.
In order to avoid queues and gatherings during Covid-19 the service stations are currently closed.
