Student card

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

The card, equipped with Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and a magnetic strip, 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), and also as an ‘electronic purse’.

The loss of a card must be immediately reported to the public security authority and communicated to the University.

Starting from 27th July 2023, but only after the completion of enrolment as well as the validation of the identity document and the enrolment form (which will take place within a few days of uploading: you will be sure of the validation when a special NOTE no longer appears on the homepage of the Alice portal), you can make an appointment through the virtual desk to collect your card at the “Matricolandosi” Enrolment Centre in Pisa, Via Buonarroti, 4, (former Marzotto area, building E). 

Appointments can already be booked for all matriculated students, from the 20th of September until the 15th of December 2023: with the delivery/ collection of the personalised card, any ‘provisional’ canteen card collected in the meantime at DSU counters in Pisa will be inactive.

After the 15th of December 2023, all uncollected cards will be sent to the ‘DOCUMENT ADDRESS’ entered on Alice at the time of registration.

If you want to check your address, you can access your personal page of the Alice portal and complete/ modify the address: you must select the ‘Personal Data’ item from the menu at the top right and check in the ‘Residence’ section that the domicile and residence addresses have been indicated correctly. 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’.

Please check that your surname is present on the mailbox at the address provided. If you have completed all the necessary formalities and have not received your student card, please contact

Students enrolled in a master’s degree at the University of Pisa and students transferring from other universities do not need to submit requests. Please check the dedicated page.

If you applied on the Gepaco web portal to switch to another study programme of the University of Pisa, your University ID number and booklet would not change. The Student office will email you to inform about the study programme change procedure.

For study programmes including an internship transcript, it will be sent to the address provided on the ‘document delivery’ section of the Alice web portal, or delivered to your relevant Department’s Student Office. Students enrolled in Medicine and Surgery Study Programme a.y. 2023/24, will receive by mail the internship transcript by March 2024.

After the switch to another study programme has been completed on the virtual desk, you can require your traineeship transcript, if applicable If you enrolled in a previous academic year, you would keep the same University booklet and on the Gepaco web portal you can print the label of the new study programme and stick it on the second page of your booklet.
