  What is the University Flash Card and what does it do?

The students who enrolled before the 2018/2019 a.y. and those who register for single course units, post lauream (for instance PhD programmes and Short specialisation degrees) or other types of courses (24 educational credits) are given the standard badge: for further information and for duplicates, please email carriere.studenti@unipd.it

The University Flash Card serves as a university electronic personal badge to identify the holders as students of the University of Padua and allow them to access university services. It can also be upgraded to a card with financial purposes.
The Flash card is valid for 7 years, both if you continue with your studies at the next level and if you change your degree programme within the University of Padua.

  What services and functions does it give access to?

  • access to university areas (e.g.: laboratories);
  • access to library loans;
  • document services (photocopies, prints, scans) in libraries and photocopying areas;
  • id checks before examinations;
  • a wide range of discounts and special offers in shops and facilities;
  • access to Bike sharing service (online subscription);

Access to ESU canteens: you no longer need your Flash Card to access, use a QRcode instead. Information on Esu’s website.

  How can I upgrade my Card to a card with financial purposes? "Flash Up Studio”

Once you have received your Card, you can upgrade it to a card with financial purposes to have your scholarship or other study-related benefits credited to it.

Scholarships and other economic benefits may be credited to your bank account, provided you enter your bank account number (IBAN) into your personal area on UNIWEB. Remember you must be either the holder or joint holder of the bank account provided. Therefore, you should upgrade your Flash Card before entering your card’s IBAN. You can ask for your Flash Card to be upgraded to a Flash Up Studio Card, a prepaid card with your name on it, to the Intesa Sanpaolo branch located in Corso Giuseppe Garibaldi, 22/26, Padova.
By doing so, the card and its data remain the same: same IBAN, PIN, user code, expiry date, CVV number.

The Flash Up Studio Card allows you to pay by bank transfer and can be credited with salary or similar (scholarships, reimbursement of university fees, mobility grants, allowances for tutoring activities, etc.).

With your Flash Up Studio you can make payments in all the stores equipped with the Flash Up Studio’s card network, both in Italy and abroad.

Please note:

  • the Card can be charged up to €10,000
  • the daily limit for cash withdrawal from ATMs is €500.00

Further information is available in the information leaflet on the bank’s website.

  How do I receive it?

If you have duly filled out your profile on Uniweb, you will receive an email from the bank confirming the shipment. You will have your Flash Card delivered to the address you entered into Uniweb within 30-40 days of the date of the confirmation email.

  May I collect the Flash Card in person?
