Digital Student Card

Student ID in the Studo App

Always at hand on your smartphone, safe and digital: With the Digital Student Card by Studo, you offer your students a modern and sustainable alternative to the classic plastic ID card.

The Digital Student Card is always at hand on your students' smartphones. Adapted to the design of your university, students can identify themselves at the university but also for student discounts. University employees and lecturers can also use our digital ID card, which we can expand – as desired – with library cards, public transport tickets and more.

The Digital Student Card is already in use in Austria, Germany, Switzerland and Slovenia.

Security features of the Digital Student Card:

  • The student card docks onto the campus management system and displays data such as name, date of birth, student number, validity or university issuer.

  • The trust-building design is based on the look of analog student IDs. With a hologram as a verification feature, authenticity can be checked at a glance.

Another security feature is an integrated QR code that verifies the validity of the ID card when scanned. The cryptographic verification is provided by us as an open source module and can be easily integrated into other existing systems of a university.

Additional use cases:

The Digital Student Card is designed in modular way. This way, all of the following functions can be integrated:

  • Library card: The ISBN-compatible barcode is linked to a library account. This makes borrowing books easy with the Digital Student Card.

  • Copying, printing and paying: The card's cryptographically secured information can also be integrated into payment systems or used for copy & print cards.

  • Semester ticket: Through a cooperation with the respective public transport system, it is also possible to use the Digital Student Card as a semester ticket.

  • International Student Card: The Digital Student Card contains all the necessary information to be accepted internationally in museums and the like.

If you are interested in the Digital Student Card, please contact our cooperation manager Lorenz Schmoly via mail or phone.
