UPV ID card

UPV ID card (TUI: University Smart Card) renewal campaign 

The UPV ID card renewal campaign for the academic year 2019-2020 will be carried out:

  • For students of Vera campus (Valencia), through immediate issue at issuance points set up by the UPV. It will start on September 4, 2019.
  • For students of Gandia and Alcoy campuses, after they receive an e-mail indicating where and when they can pick their UPV card.

This information will be updated for each student in the intranet (in the section "UPV card") and/or they will receive an e-mail outlining the steps to follow.

The new UPV ID card is called the university smart card (TUI) and identifies cardholders as members of the university community. It is beige in colour and contains user data, a photograph, the relation with the institution (that is, if the holder is a student, PDI, PAS) and its validity. Furthermore, there is space for a signature at the back of the card.

The TUI is fitted with a number of devices: Mifare system (proximity technology), barcode, QR code, magnetic strip and microchip, thus allowing the inclusion of an electronic certificate. Though this card is the result of an agreement with Banco Santander, the TUI does not work as a bank card and therefore cannot be used for financial services.

The UPV also prints another ID document called the in-house card, which is red in colour and is fitted with proximity technology and a barcode. This ID document is only issued to persons linked to the UPV for a short period of time.

The Accreditations Office (which is part of the Communications Department) is the administrative body in charge of coordinating the issuance of UPV cards. However, there are a number of UPV bodies that attend to and process applications from different categories.

If you would like more information about your UPV card, click on the following link. For example, you can find out where each ID document is processed, where you must collect it, documents that the holder has to submit, the deadlines for application...

To complement all of this, you can access individual documentation for each user via the intranet (or extranet):

  • Search for UPV Card and you will find a list of your most recent accreditations.
  • In the section Relation with the UPV, you have details about the UPV media available to you depending on the category you belong to.
  • Lastly, the section General offers and discounts gives you a list of companies that offer members of the university community discounts on their products and services.
