Student ID Card

The student ID card is a document confirming the student status, that entitles you to use all kinds of discounts available to students. In order to receive the UE Katowice student ID card, you should pay a fee of 22 PLN to the individual bank account number (the number can be found in the Virtual University - tab "Student Data/Finance") and provide an electronic passport format photo.

It's best to complete the formalities before you arrive in Poland, so that the issue of a card can be ordered right after the fee transfer is confirmed. Your student ID card should be ready to collect within the first week of your stay at the University.
