Getting your Student ID Card (legitymacja):

Students apply for the student card at their faculty Dean’s Office (dziekanat) (visit it preferably with your tutor as you will have to cope with some forms in Polish).

First, you have to go to the Dean’s Office and register. You have to go there during the first day of your stay!

Then, you have to pay for the student ID card – 17 PLN (ca. 4 EUR).
To pay for your student ID cards, you have to go to a post office. To do that, you will have to fill a post document, which you can download here.

Here you can find two files:
1. example – you can see, where to put your name and surname and the name of the faculty you’re in;
2. form – to be printed and filled with the data mentioned above.

Then, after ca. two weeks, your student ID card should be ready at the Dean’s Office.


Issuing the card takes a few days – however it is necessary to get around and enjoy your student life at discount prices.
