Important information concerning student ID cards on new campus
All LAMK degree students will get an ID card for accessing new campus. The card is based on AMK student card and it is also official Finnish student card for LAMKO members. Without the membership to LAMKO it only works as an ID card and doesn’t allow you to get student discounts.
Everyone who has joined LAMKO this semester will automatically get this new card when we get the orders running. To those who are already our members or don’t want to join the student union, we’ll open a separate card ordering form on LAMKO website during September. All student cards in use are changed to the new one and the first card is free for student.
Due to the change of all student cards, we wish that the validation sticker of 2017-18 is not changed to old card without heavy reason. Last year’s sticker is valid until end of September. For the new members, we recommend to use digital student card using Frank App until you get the plastic card.
When we are talking about ID card, the photo on the card must be appropriate. The photo must be passport photo –a clear face photo using simple, clear background. The photo can be a “selfie” if the mentioned requirements are fulfilled. All photos are checked and if we need to reject the photo, it will delay delivery of the card. If necessary, the photo can be taken at LAMKO’s office. The card will arrive to LAMKO’s office and we’ll send an email notification when the card can be collected.
Very soon you can open campus doors and lockers, log in to printers and required machines with the same card. And as a LAMKO member, the card is also a student card giving you a big bunch of benefits so if you haven’t joined the student union yet, now it’s the time!
We’ll inform more when the order form for just the card is opened. Meanwhile, if you have any questions, we are happy to answer!
