Student's ID

Electronic Student ID cards have replaced paper ones. One plastic card plays the role of three documents:

  • a traditional student ID card, 
  • a library card with access to the libraries of the Tri-City universities
  • and a city card thats serves as a ticket for public transport.

The Electronic Student ID is a plastic card with a built-in contactless microchip. It includes an owner’s image and personal data, the document validity date and a visible record of student’s rights to allowances confirmed by a small hologram.

The Electronic Student ID pattern is below.

The student receives one Electronic Student ID Card for the entire duration of study.

Pursuant to § 11 of the Decree of the Rector of Gdańsk University of Technology No. 24/2019 of 9 August 2019: "Students continuing their studies to do the second-cycle programme, or re-taking studies are entitled to their Electronic Student ID Cards previously issued by Gdańsk University of Technology." 
If a student re-takes or continues studies at GUT to obtain a higher degree and his/her personal data have not changed (name, address, etc.), they do not have to incur the cost of printing a new Electronic Student ID Card.

If a student changes the faculty, the faculty office of the new faculty will ask the faculty office of the previous one to provide them with the student’s Electronic ID card. Therefore, students are asked to inform the faculty offices about giving their Electronic Student ID Card back to another department.

The student may use an electronic ID card until the date of graduation, suspension of student rights or deletion from the list of students. Graduates of the first degree may use an electronic card until 31 October in the year of graduation.


The fee for issuing an Electronic Student ID Card is determined by the Rector’s Decree. A student will be charged 25,50 PLN for issuing an original document 33 PLN for a duplicate.
