Update your LU-Card before 23 March - new deadline

23 February 2018

The university continuously works to provide the best security of your LU-Card. It is therefore necessary to update the chip in your LU-Card. You must arrange this yourself before 23 March 2018. If you are unable to update your card in time, there is a risk of your card being blocked. The card will no longer be valid. You will have to request a new card and costs may be associated with this.


You can update your LU-Card by placing it on an updater. After the updater beeps you can remove your card. You need to put your LU-card on the updater once, but there are no consequences if you put your LU-Card on an updater several times.

Not having occasion to update

Are you not able to update your LU-Card, for instance because you are abroad? Please send an e-mail to the ISSC-helpdesk.

The updaters are indicated with the LU-Card Logo


There is an updater at each desk in the list below. The updaters are indicated with the LU-Card Logo. Please notice that this is not the same updater that you use to renew your subscription for parking garages.
