The UMcard is a smart card for students, employees and (some) visitors. The UMcard is your official ID within the university. Only with the card you can enter the UM buildings, parking lots, and other facilties.
A UMcard can be used to pay at the Mensa, M.rk.t and some vending machines. But you can also use it to identify yourself at test locations, for printing at UM or to borrow books at the library.
The Student Services Centre (SSC) is responsible for issuing the cards to new students. New UM students will receive an invitation by email to sign up for a timeslot for picking up their UMcard.
You can find more information about the applications of the UM card on this page. General information about the UMcard and the management thereof has been included in the Administrative and Management Regulations UMcard (Dutch only).
