ISIC CARD = DOOR CARD (not the ISIC Student card issued by banks or virtual card)

One’s status as a student is proven by an ISIC card, which all students can apply for. To apply for a student ID card, please contact EKA administrator Kaja Kivit, (or the information desk at EKA main building). It takes about 10 days to receive the card. You will be notified by e-mail when your card is ready, and you can pick it up from the information desk by the main door.

Your student card is also your door card in EKA. If you lose the card, please notify the information desk about it and the access rights will be removed from the lost card.

NB! Student cards issued by the banks or virtual cars do not work as door cards.
