Getting your student card

Physical student card

If you ordered a physical student card, the card will be sent to JAMKO office. You will receive an email to your JAMK email address, when your student card is ready and can be picked up. The delivery time is 1-3 weeks.

Digital student card

Instead of physical student card or in addition to it you can also use a digital student card via Pivo mobile app. New JAMKO members can activate their digital student card after their study place has been confirmed and the information has been transferred to the student information database. The digital student card can normally be activated within 24 hours after you have paid your membership fee.

To activate your digital student card
  1. Download the Pivo mobile app from the app store.
  2. Activate Pivo with your online banking credentials and phone number. The phone number must be the same that you entered on the order form in our web shop.
  3. Click on the Student card icon in the app and follow the instructions.
