Physical student cards have delivery difficulties

As a sign of membership, you will receive an official student card. Our members receive a plastic AMK student card, but also a Pivo digital student card.

We regret to inform you that there are delivery difficulties with the physical cards. Due to a technical problem, we received information about the end of card templates too late. In cooperation with HAMK, we have reacted to the situation and more card templates are coming. Unfortunately, delivery takes some time. The cards contain the HAMK key, which is why card templates can only be ordered from certain suppliers.

Exchange students: Since you don’t have access to the digital student card, we have been able to secure that you will get a physical student card.

We therefore recommend using Pivo’s digital student card in the meantime. Pivo’s student card is just as valid proof of student status as a plastic card, which means you get all the same benefits and discounts.

The implementation of Pivo’s student card only takes a moment.

Pivo’s student card is free of charge, but since Pivo is a mobile payment application, you need Finnish online bank credentials and your payment card information to activate it. Please note, that the use of digital student card requires strong identification with Finnish bank ID.

This is how you start to use Pivo’s student card:

  1. Download Pivo to your phone and activate the application by following Pivo’s instructions.
    1. If you can’t find Pivo app from your app store, check that the country is Finland in the app store settings.
  2. Select Student card from Pivo’s main view.
  3. Accept the terms of use of the student card, select your education level and student union and follow Pivo’s instructions.
  4. Add a photo to the student card using Pivo’s instructions. You can change the picture every six months.

    We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and will do everything we can to ensure that you also receive the physical card as soon as possible.
