With this student card, you can identify yourself and show that you are allowed to be in the HKU buildings and participate in exams. You are obliged to carry the student ID card with you when present at the HKU premises. The card also gives your access to the libraries, and is needed to use printers and copiers.

Additionally, the card can be used to get discounts on some subscriptions and entrance tickets.

If you do not have a Dutch address, you will receive a message when your card is ready to be picked up at the Service Desk Student Affairs.

Your declaration of enrolment will be available online in your account in Osiris Student. The login details of your account in Osiris Student are provided to you per email upon or soon after enrolment.
