When the library's units are closed, it is possible to submit a request for a Library card on the service portal. The service has already been in use for students with a student card and staff, but now those students in the University community who do not have a student card can also order a Library card. A Library card is required to be able to use material pick-up service points during the pandemic.
  • If you have a student card or you are waiting for it, then in the service portal, you can ask for the activation of your library card by logging in to the service with your tuni-ID. You can find the activate or order a library card button under the library services section.
  • If you do not have a stundet card, in service portal you can order a separate Library card for yourself. Once you have logged in to the service with your tuni-ID, the activate or order a library card button can be found under the library services section. We will deliver the card by post to your student register address.   
  • The library card activation request also works for staff. Staff can order a library card for themselves at You can find the order a library card button in the Library Services section. The library card is delivered to the subscriber's internal postal address.

The library system generates a PIN code for the library card, which is automatically sent to the subscriber's e-mail when the card is activated.


Follow the information on the library's website and intranet, and you will always find the latest information about the situation of the library's services during a pandemic.

Despite the closure of the library's premises, all the library's online services will continue as normal.
