3. West Card/Västkortet
In order to access rooms at the university, borrow books from the library, print, copy or borrow technical equipment you will need the West card (Västkortet in Swedish).
The card is linked to your account, so the 4-digit code you select when creating your account applies also to this card. You will receive a form to get the West Card during Introduction Days.

As the university does not accept cash, you will also need to create a personal PayEx-account in order to top-up money on your West Card and pay for your printouts.

For purposes within Sweden, such as the Migration Agency, you can print your own registration certificate (which courses you are/have been registered on) or transcript of records (your results/grades). For purposes outside of Sweden you need a signature and stamp. For this, please visit ServiceCenter and they will issue one for you.
All international exchange students receive their transcript of records at the end of their study period (approximately 3 weeks after the end of the same semester) automatically.
