All students are issued a personal access card during their time at SLU. Data on students is collected directly from Ladok. This means that only active students can have access to SLU premises. In addition to opening doors, the card can be used for printing and copying. The Security Unit is responsible for access cards and authorisation.
Most SLU premises are open during the day. However, certain premises require access cards also for daytime access. Access cards are primarily used for computer rooms, etc. during evenings and weekends.
To receive an access card, you must be active at SLU and registered in Ladok. The card is valid one semester at a time. There is an overlap period to allow registration and administration. Students can use the same access card in Alnarp, Uppsala and Umeå.
Getting your access card
If you are a new student, you will receive an email saying that you can pick up your card at your local service centre. You will receive this email once you have been registered on a course in Ladok.
NB: Check that you have been registered before picking up your access card. Do this by logging on to Ladok student on the student web start page.
- Alnarp: Service Centre, Alnarpsgården
- Uppsala: Service Centre, Ulls hus, Ultuna
- Umeå: Service Centre, “Skogis” building
- Skinnskatteberg: SLU Library
Your service centre can help with the most common access card questions.
When you collect your access card, you must show ID, and you must read through and accept the rules for access cards before it is issued to you.
Once you have collected your access card, an email will be sent to your @slu.se address with information on your four-digit pin code, card number and the rules for access cards.
The system automatically generates a pin code.
The course codes in Ladok automatically control which buildings and facilities you are authorised to enter. If students need a change in authorisation, the department secretary or equivalent must handle this. Students are not allowed to request increased authorisation.
