Student card

The “STUDENTE DELLA TOSCANA” card is a magnetic card issued to all enrolled students that allows those attending one of the universities in Tuscany to access all university services, regardless of the university at which they are enrolled.

The card, equipped with Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and a magnetic stripe, can be used to access all university services, including the dining halls present in the various universities managed by the Diritto allo Studio Universitario – ARDSU (the Regional Agency for the Right to Higher Education).

The student card also has an ‘electronic purse’ function. The card can be used in Tuscan university canteens from the day after it has been issued. The loss of the card must be immediately reported to the public security authority and communicated to the University.

ONLY after the completion of enrollment as well as the validation of the identity document and the enrollment form (which will take place within a few days of uploading: you will be sure of the validation when a special NOTE will no longer appear on the Alice portal home) for first-year students enrolled in the three-year and single-cycle master’s degrees, it is possible to book an appointment through the virtual desk for the physical retrieval of the student card from 3 October to 7 December 2022 at the Centro Matricolandosi, in Pisa, via Filippo Buonarroti 4, Building E, first floor. It is mandatory to show a valid identity document and WITHDRAWAL BY PROXY IS NOT PROVIDED. The card will be active from the day after collection for use in university canteens.

The card will be active from the day after collection for use at the university canteens unless you already have a “provisional” canteen card for the meantime collected from the DSU counters in Pisa: in this case to activate the card you will need to access the booking portal and request the ONLINE ACTIVATION service `STUDENTE DELLA TOSCANA` CARD.  

All cards that have not been collected on 7 December 2022 will be sent to the address entered on Alice at the time of registration.

If you want your card to be sent home and this does not coincide with your residence address, indicate your full home address and – in the “contact details” section, “shipping documents to” – choose “home”.
