Student Card


Every active student at KTH is entitled to a student card. This card proves that you are a student at KTH, and also gives you right to some discounts at different stores. The student card is often referred to as the Mecenat card, named after the company providing the card. Please note that you don’t have to become a member of THS to receive the card.


To be eligible for the student discount card, you must meet the following criteria:

  • You must be registered for courses at KTH. You can check your registrations here. If you are only admitted to the course, and not registered, then it is not sufficient for this requirement.
  • You must have an email-address and current address registered in Ladok. You can check your information here.
  • If you are a PhD-student, your department must have registered your activity for your current semester in Ladok. This is done manually by KTH and therefore it might take some time. You can also provide us with a signed paper from your supervisor, stating your pace of study for the current semester.
  • If you are doing an internship at KTH, you must contact your international coordinator in order to be registered properly as a student. Their contact information can be found here. Please note that THS will not be able to assist you in these cases.
  • You must be registered for at least 75% activity at KTH to be eligible for the traveling discount. You can check your registrations here. If you are only admitted to the course, and not registered, then it is not sufficient for this requirement.

If any of these criteria is not met, you will not receive a student card.

Access to the Student Card:

Please note that the student card is not a physical card – it is a digital card in an app for your phone. The app is named Mecenat and can be downloaded from Google Play/Appstore. To use the app, you first need to sign up for an account using your personal number (T-number for newly admitted international students), and a unique student id number used only for this app.

This student id-number will be emailed to you within a few days after the criteria above are met. The email will be sent to the address you have provided in Ladok.
